Students applying for entry into Point Park University’s Post-Bac B.S. in Accounting program must meet the following requirements:
Public accountants are responsible for providing various services designed to help their clients successfully navigate their finances. Common areas of services include accounting and auditing, tax preparation and consulting. Public accountant clients vary tremendously; they may include individuals, small and large companies, government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions.
Management accountants (also called “corporate accountants”) help companies correlate their financials with an overall corporate business strategy. They may be charged with budgeting, managing taxes and assets, strategic planning, preparing statements, supervising lower-level staff and other related tasks. Management accountants generally work for a single company.
Internal auditors review financial records of companies to help them manage risks, meet strategic objectives and evaluate business practices. They are employees of the company in question, and their work is usually reported internally and tailored to company objectives. Internal auditors usually report to senior management and board members.
External auditors (also known as “independent auditors”) are certified public accountants charged with examining the financial records of companies. They serve as outside, unaffiliated parties to help avoid conflicts of interest. External auditors review financial statements and data, inspect business processes, ensure tax code compliance, and develop and report opinions as to the integrity of the company’s financial operations.
