Enrollment in the master of accountancy program at Southern Utah State College is now 26 and expected to climb. This compares with four students in 1985, when the program was established under the direction of Utah's State Board of Regents.
A primary focus of the program is to prepare students for employment as certified public accountants."Technical training which students receive in the master of accountancy program assists in preparing students for the CPA exam," said Harold Hiskey, dean of business, technology and communication at SUSC.
The master of accountancy program is designed for those students who have received a bachelor's degree in accounting with an emphasis in business. Students have the choice of either a four-quarter or a two-year program of study.
