Our faculty members include a retired Big Four partner and others who have had successful careers in Big Four and regional accounting firms, major corporations, small businesses, and government. We also maintain the highest academic qualifications and regularly publish in scholarly and professional journals.
As dedicated teachers, our faculty bring their expertise into the classroom, challenging students to learn by doing while they build credentials and integrate disciplines. They work closely with students, whether it’s through collaborative research, supervising internships, or advising them about graduate school and careers.
The accounting curriculum provides a flexible program of study relevant to all areas of accounting. Electives and internships permit you to pursue areas of specific interests. The program also provides the basic background for the major professional examinations (i.e., CPA, CMA, CIA, CFM, and CISA).
After graduation, you may choose to pursue the Master of Professional Accountancy (MPAc). This program was developed by Bryant faculty and the region’s top accounting professionals as a fifth-year accelerated graduate degree option that allows you to finish the 150-hour prerequisite and sit earlier for the CPA exam.
PricewaterhouseCoopers Accounting Careers Leadership Institute
The PricewaterhouseCoopers Accounting Careers Leadership Institute is a week-long, hands-on opportunity for Latino/a and African American or Black high school juniors (rising seniors) to learn more about the accounting profession and about the key role accountants play in society. Throughout the program, students work directly with Bryant University faculty, staff, and students, as well as professionals from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the largest professional services firm in the world.
Program participants are immersed in an exciting educational environment, living on Bryant's campus for a week and learning through interaction with accounting professionals, by examining case studies, and through role play.
Students accepted into the program not only learn about their potential in the accounting profession, they will also begin to appreciate the unique skills and contributions of all people within an organization.
- Take part in leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving exercises with Bryant faculty, staff, and PwC accounting professionals.
- Spend a day at PwC offices in Boston and talk with professionals who perform a surprising variety of functions in the field of accounting.
- Experience college life by living in a residence hall on the Bryant campus.
To apply, students must be college-bound African-American or Latino/a high school juniors (rising seniors) who have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students must have also completed Algebra II by the end of the junior year.
PwC and Bryant University will be extending the application deadline to Thursday, April 30, 2020, for the summer PwCACLI program. We are hoping that the obstacles related to the Coronavirus will no longer present a risk to have this program hosted at Bryant University.
