The Accounting program at Merrimack provides the gateway to the accounting profession, preparing students for entry-level positions in public, corporate/managerial, not-for-profit, and governmental accounting. As business, accounting, finance and financial reporting, and filings/compliance have become more complex and regulated there has been a significant increase in demand for qualified accountants in all fields.
Students are exposed to areas of the profession through course work, cooperative education and internship opportunities, the study abroad program, guest speakers, and career fairs and events.
