Accounting: Gateway to Business Analysis
The SCU accounting program is an eminent provider of accounting professionals and leaders in the Silicon Valley. LinkedIn ranks our program as #8 in the nation, based on the success of our graduates, while U.S. News and World Report ranks our program as #23, based on a national survey of college officials. We are the sole AACSB-accredited accounting program in Northern California.
Our undergraduate program offers two majors: Accounting and Accounting & Information Systems (A&IS). Students in both majors are eligible for merit-based accounting scholarships in their sophomore and junior years. Our renowned Certificate of Advanced Accounting Proficiency (CAAP) program offers an opportunity for college graduates pursuing CPA certification to obtain the accounting units required for CPA licensure.
Our students are highly sought by national and regional accounting firms. Most of our students participate in externships and internships, and then accept full-time job offers before the beginning of their senior years.

Professor Jim Sepe will be retiring at the end of the 2017-2018 academic year. Even for accountants who specialize in collecting and summarizing information, it is difficult to list all the contributions Jim has made to our accounting department and more broadly to accounting education.
The Accounting Department welcomes two new tenure-track faculty members, Amanda Badger and Hyungshin Park, to the accounting family. Both of them will begin teaching undergraduate accounting courses in 2017-18.
