Most programs take one to two years to complete.

What is a certificate in professional accounting? A certificate in accounting is a specialty designation for students preparing for accounting positions in the workforce. Certificates are available in managerial accounting, payroll, and controlling. One of the primary skills learned is how to analyze and forecast financial data. Students will also learn how to structure a sound fiscal plan and make strategic decisions. In order to accommodate the needs of an international student base, courses may be available in more than one language. Students learn how to properly decipher financial data and apply the understanding of that information to critical decisions within the company. Many programs also prepare students for taking the CPA exam.

Investing in a certificate in professional accounting is a profitable move for upwardly-mobile professionals. Many employers prefer candidates who already have knowledge of the industry, and those with superior proficiency in management are in particularly high demand.

Pricing for professional accounting certificates varies depending on the certificate program. The length and nature of the required courses are the primary factors in cost determination.

Professional accounting certificates guide you towards careers in accounting management. Certificate programs are designed to prepare graduates for job opportunities as consultants and team leaders in financial services firms. Positions with regulatory reporting responsibilities are also open to students with professional accounting designations. Those who wish to own independent businesses will be able to do so with a solid frame of reference provided by an accounting certificate program.

Courses may be available online for individuals with schedules that require flexibility. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
