To help meet the job market needs, Radford University will begin
offering an accounting certificate in the fall.
The one-year Accounting Certificate program consists of 30
credit hours. 6 hours of prerequisite classes (ACTG 211 and ACTG
212, or equivalent) and 24 hours of upper division accounting
classes. Requirements include a bachelor's degree in any discipline
with a cumulative 2.5 GPA or better.
The program will be offered through Radford University's Department of Accounting, Finance and Business Law.
"It is a perfect opportunity for business majors to improve their
options and it gives non-business majors a chance to change their
career arc," said Department Chair Dan Davidson. "In addition, it
will help to meet a demand in the state and region."
The Accounting Certificate is a classroom program. However,
some classes may also be available online.
Radford University accounting graduates have a 96 percent jobplacement rate with a median starting salary of $40,235. Their
lifetime earnings expectation is $4,770,000.
Individuals applying for the Accounting Certificate program will
use the non-degree-seeking application for admission, which can
be found on the Radford University Registrar's website: www.radford.edu/registrar.
To learn more, contact the Department of Accounting, Finance
and Business Law at 540-831-6595 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
