Accounting AT WABASH
Wabash College has partnered with the Indiana University Kelley School of Business to formalizie a pipeline program that will guide Wabash students through the prerequisites for admission to the MSA program. It gives privileged access to Wabash students so that they may enroll at IU immediately upon graduation and sit for the CPA exam the following summer.
The accounting accreditation association decided that a traditional educational model of attending a large institution produced accountants who were too narrowly trained and increased the general education requirements by an additional 30 hours. The result is that it now takes five years rather than four to prepare to take the CPA exam, even for undergraduate accounting majors.This policy change has made liberal arts schools such as Wabash competitive with large universities that offer dedicated undergraduate accounting programs.
