The Four-Plus-One Program in Accounting combines the BBA-Accounting degree with the MBA - Accounting Concentration to provide coursework required to take the Uniform CPA Exam (Texas State Board of Public Accountancy). If you are a resident of another state, contact our department to determine whether our program fulfills requirements to take the Uniform CPA Exam in your home state.

A private school education at a public school price

Part of the Texas Woman’s experience is keeping costs low and education quality high. As a result, TWU is the most affordable public university in the DFW Metroplex. For more information on costs, visit our Cost of Attendance site.

Our small class sizes also allow you to interact closely with your classmates and professors, many of which combine more than 20 years teaching experience with real-world accounting expertise. Our accounting program is designed to prepare you for quick entry into public accounting and fully prepare you for the CPA or CMA exam.

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 in Business 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.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the TWU Graduate School

Candidacy will be granted only after a period of successful graduate work and after compliance with the conditions and course of study established by the University and its departments, schools, and colleges have been met.

The total enrollment of graduate students is limited. All applications to the Graduate School are subject to whatever provisions may limit the enrollment of graduate students.

Graduate students who have been enrolled, may stop out for a maximum of two years including the last semester of enrollment. If another institution is attended during the two year timeframe, the student must reapply.

Graduate students are subject to the general rules and regulations of the University and are expected to maintain the high standard of social and academic life of the University as well as the professional standards of their chosen field of study. Thus, graduate students are subject to all rules and regulations set forth in the Student Handbook, the Graduate Catalog, and the policy statements of the Graduate School and the academic components. All graduate students of Texas Woman’s University are expected to know and adhere to high standards of personal conduct and of academic integrity and scholarship.
