McMinnville, Ore - June 5, 2012 - To meet the demand for further education in the accounting field, Linfield College Adult Degree Program announces the offering of two accounting programs, an online accounting degree and an online accounting certificate. Designed for busy adults looking to advance, or begin, their careers in accounting, both programs enable students to go back to college while allowing flexibility for work, life, and family commitments by offering the educational programs entirely through online courses. The Bachelor’s degree in accounting and the Post Baccalaureate Accounting Certificate, are designed to prepare professionals who want to qualify for positions in public accounting, government and non-profit accounting, as well as corporate accounting. Many graduates of the degree and the certificate program have qualified to take the CPA exam in their state to become Certified Public Accountants (CPAs). Both accredited online programs give students the opportunity to increase their knowledge across multiple accounting sectors, allowing them to advance both their careers and education.
Right now almost every industry, both in the public and private sectors, has demand for accountants, offering a diverse landscape of opportunity for those entering the field. With an online accounting degree, graduates are able to match their interests with their careers. Earning a bachelor’s degree in accounting online enables students opportunities in several areas of accounting, in the public and private accounting sectors. The Linfield College accounting programs give students the competitive edge to advance as professionals in an industry that offers a steady career, competitive salary and growth.
Accounting certificates also provide a foundation for career advancement and earning power in the accounting profession. The Linfield College Post Baccalaureate Accounting Certificate prepares graduates with the knowledge to build a career in accounting or expand the scope of their established accounting knowledge for advancement in their current organization or in a new position.
“Linfield’s Adult Degree Program was perfect for my busy schedule,” said Brian Roberts, Linfield accounting graduate. “I was able to go back to school without sacrificing life, work, and family commitments. Without it, I would still be at my former job with limited growth opportunities. Now I feel more accomplished and on a promising career path in the accounting profession.”
Admission into the online accounting degree program is the ideal option for adults who have not yet completed a bachelor’s degree. Those interested in the accounting certificate program will have earned a Bachelor’s degree in another major from a regionally accredited college or university, and will take two courses, Financial Accounting and Managerial Accounting online at Linfield or have already completed the equivalent in approved transfer courses. During the months of June and July Linfield College advisors and recruiters are expanding their contacts to potential accounting students. Now is the perfect opportunity to start advancing your career and education. To learn more about how to be admitted into either program, contact Linfield College today.
