Midway College’s Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting is designed to prepare learners for leadership positions in the fast growing and challenging field of accounting. Accounting professionals perform vital functions for their clients or organizations by offering an increasingly wide array of services. Robert Half, a leading employment placement firm, estimates an 18 to 26 percent increase in accounting jobs during the next few years and clearly the profession has grown into being much more than just “number-crunching.”

Midway’s accounting degree meets the course requirements to sit for the CPA and CMA exams. Kentucky, along with most other states, requires candidates who sit for the CPA exam to have completed a baccalaureate degree with 27 semester hours of accounting courses. Kentucky also requires 150 semester hours and one year of professional accounting experience to be fully licensed as a CPA. Students can earn these additional credit hours in undergraduate or graduate courses at Midway College.

Midway’s degree exposes students to 4 significant areas of accounting:
1. Knowledge of general business environment and business concepts that professionals need to know in order to understand the underlying business reasons for and accounting implications of business transactions, and the skills needed to apply that knowledge.

2. Generally accepted accounting principles for business enterprises, not-for-profit organizations, and governmental entities, and the skills needed to apply that knowledge.

3. Auditing procedures, generally accepted auditing standards and other standards related to attest engagements, and the skills needed to apply that knowledge.

4. Knowledge of federal taxation, ethics, professional and legal responsibilities, and business law, and the skills needed to apply that knowledge.
