What is the most important or unique thing about Sullivan's Associate of Science in Accounting program?
The Accounting program at Sullivan University follows a stair-step process starting with an associate degree (providing the skill set needed for an entry-level position), progressing on to a bachelor’s degree (providing the knowledge and understanding for a management position), and culminating in a master’s degree with an Accounting concentration (leading to a CPA certification and/or controller or senior manager position).
The Accounting faculty is comprised of full-time and adjunct instructors, all of whom have held various accounting positions, providing students with insight into real-world accounting practices. Additionally, small class sizes in the major field of study allow for individualized attention and coaching in career opportunities.
