Unlike most traditional four-year colleges — where students may face as much as an extra year of coursework to meet the 150 hours required to take the CPA exam in most states — Illinois Wesleyan accounting students typically meet the requirement within four years.
In recent years, Illinois Wesleyan accounting graduates have accepted positions with all of the major accounting firms and with leading corporations around the country. Corporate recruiters have often commented on how much they enjoy visiting the IWU campus because of the poise and preparation of the candidates in our accounting program.
Junior accounting majors at IWU may apply for a full-time, paid 10-week winter internship. Through this program, students spend the first 10-weeks of the spring semester working a full-time internship. These students remain on track to graduate in four years and have often secured a job by the end of this program.
