Employers prefer to employ and promote individuals who have passed the CPA Exam. Accounting graduates find it extremely difficult to sit for the exam after they begin their full-time jobs. In response, the George W. Daverio School of Accountancy will host a Summer CPA Exam Review Program in partnership with Becker Professional Education for outstanding students who will complete the Accelerated BS/MS Accounting program. Other students who have completed all requirements to sit for the CPA Exam in the State of Ohio will be accepted into the program as well.
