Do you like numbers? Try these: Accounting jobs are projected to grow 10 percent through 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.

Bentley has been a top accounting school for more than 100 years. Our experience adds up. 

Bentley’s accounting degree can be tailored to match specialized accounting careers like auditing or IT. Depending on the path you choose, you may earn credentials from professional groups, like the Institute for Internal Auditors, along the way. If you’re seeking to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), you can choose between a four-year undergraduate accounting degree or our Falcon Fast-Track program which puts you on a path to earn your graduate degree. Either way, you leave Bentley prepared to sit for the CPA exam and get to work.
