CPA Exam Pass Rate Above National Average
Brock School of Business is #1 in Alabama for accounting graduates who are first-time CPA exam takers with a pass rate of more than two times the national average. In addition, our graduates' scores are 7.3% higher than the national average for first-time test takers.
Master of Accountancy Program
Brock School of Business M.Acc. prepares graduates to be successful accountants and advisors in organizations globally. We offer a Professional Accountancy Program (a joint B.S.B.A. Accounting/M.Acc degree) that is completed in 150 credit hours. Taking the M.A.cc courses upon completion of the undergraduate degree places graduates in the workforce one year after completing the accounting degree and M.Acc program.
Because of Brock School of Business relationships with firms in the accounting industry, our graduates secure employment or have opportunites for careers in a number of accounting firms, publicly and privately held companies across many industries and in government entities. 99% of our graduates are employed within three months of graduation.
