TWU does more to build women leaders

Only 5.4 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women, and only 25 percent of senior managers and executives within those companies are women. TWU is working to help change that.

More than 70 percent of our faculty and staff across the university are women. While COB faculty prepare you to tackle the male-dominated world of business, our outreach staff work closely with employers to bring networking and employment opportunities to campus.

For our budding entrepreneurs, TWU’s Center for Women Entrepreneurs is the state’s only university center dedicated to women’s entrepreneurship and business ownership. The Center provides tools for you to succeed including access to training/coaching, funding, mentoring and networking opportunities.

TWU believes in opening doors for its students

The Career Connections Center on each campus provides advising services and tailored career planning for our students and alumni, from career advising and networking to negotiating a salary after graduation. The Career Center has also implemented Handshake, a unique resume reviewing and job opening database that works to fast-track your job search.

The COB takes it one step further with a team of Outreach and External Relations staff that work with the Career Connections Center to keep our business students in-the-know on employment opportunities and networking events.

Sitting for the CPA Exam

Students who complete both the BBA in Accounting and MSA degrees at TWU should be fully prepared to sit for the CPA Exam. The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy regulates class requirements and, from time to time, changes the requirements to sit for the CPA Exam. TWU makes every effort to keep class requirements in alignment with the Board's requirements and makes updates in class requirements as needed.  

Students who do not have both the BBA in Accounting and MSA degrees at TWU may schedule a meeting with an accounting faculty member to develop an individual plan to sit for the CPA Exam. This is recommended for all students at least one year before.

Careers & salaries*

With this degree, you have multiple career opportunities including:

*Median salaries, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
