The B.S. in Internal Accounting is mainly targeted to students who are not interested in becoming CPAs. However, students graduating from the Internal Accounting program may be able to TAKE the CPA exam but will NOT be able to receive licensure in New York State unless they subsequently complete the other 30 required credits. As you know, the state requires 150 credits for certification/licensure. If you are considering becoming a CPA, you should be majoring in (A) BS in Accounting and then complete 30 credit graduate MS in Accounting program or (B) 150-credit undergraduate program BS in Accounting and BMF.
