For over 30 years, the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) has been launching business leaders of the world. We provide an education where experience matters.

All of our programs provide students with the technical, analytical, evaluative, and communication skills needed to prepare for successful careers in public accounting, finance, industry, government and not-for-profit sectors.

CPA logoSAF has received the highest level of national accreditation under the Chartered Professional Accountancy (CPA) National Accreditation Standards. The SAF's national accreditation provides customized pathways for SAF students to tailor their education for a direct route to the CPA designation.

Students in AFM, Math/CPA, and Biotech/CPA can combine their undergraduate studies with the MAcc graduate program to move directly to the CPA Common Final Exam (CFE) after graduation.

The SAF's AFM and CFM programs are recognized under the CFA Institute University Recognition program. AFM and CFM students will receive advanced preparation to challenge the 3 CFA accreditation exams as early as Year 4 of their program.
