Program Highlights

The evening Accounting program offered through PACE and the Tabor School of Business prepares students for a career in the Accounting profession and also to take any certified accounting exams. The program works especially well for students who have earned an associate degree in Accounting from a community college. Millikin's accelerated evening Accounting program offers the opportunity to complete a bachelor's degree in a year-round program taught by Tabor School of Business faculty. Each class runs for 10 weeks, and students generally take two classes at a time.

In order for prospective students to be accepted into the PACE Accounting program, they must also meet the admission requirements of the Tabor School of Business.

Accounting graduates are always in high demand. Career opportunities for Accounting graduates include corporate accounting, corporate finance, public accounting, governmental accounting, and non-profit organization accounting.
