Program overview

Accounting Information Systems is a four-year program designed to provide a bachelor of business administration degree with a concentration in accounting and computer information systems. The program combines the coursework required for a degree in accounting with several computer information systems courses. Eastern Michigan University is one of only a few universities in the country offering this unique degree. Accounting information systems majors who obtain this degree are well prepared for careers in a dynamic and ever-changing environment, where knowledge of both accounting and computer information systems is mandatory. Possible career choices include computer systems design, computer assurance services, computer security analysis, internal auditing, public accounting, nonprofit accounting, and strategic managerial accounting. Upon graduation, accounting information systems majors who plan to become certified public accountants, certified management accountants, certified internal auditors or certified information systems auditors can qualify to sit for national certification examinations. In Michigan, CPA candidates can qualify to sit for the exam upon graduation, but they need 150 hours of education for licensure in Michigan. However, many states require CPA candidates to have earned 150 hours of credit, or possibly a master’s degree, before sitting for the exam. Be sure you know the requirements for your state. The general requirements for the bachelor of business administration degree, the academic major requirements below and sufficient electives to meet the minimum of 124 hours for graduation must be completed.
