Why Accounting at TWU?
TWU’s College of Business is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), a leading association for business education that is uniquely focused on teaching excellence and student outcomes.
Texas Woman’s also ranks 6th (tied) among U.S. universities for diversity, according to U.S. News & World Report.
Still need your B.B.A.?
Texas Woman's offers a combination B.B.A. and M.B.A. with Accounting emphasis that allows you to complete both programs in as little as five years and for just $42,500. No GMAT or GRE required.
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.
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.
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.
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.
