School of Professional Accountancy
The LIU Post School of Professional Accountancy holds the proud distinction of being the first autonomous school of professional accountancy in the nation. Founded in 1974, the School prepares students for careers as accountants, tax preparers and estate and financial planners. The curriculum qualifies students to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination in New York State. Graduate programs in accountancy and taxation are offered in the blended learning format, which combines the convenience of online learning with the benefits of live classroom discussion and interaction. The School is part of LIU Post's College of Management, which is accredited by AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
All courses incorporate the latest technology and software applications in the digital accounting and taxation fields. Our faculty members possess an unsurpassed combination of experience and professional and academic credentials. An extensive internship program connects students with leading firms in the New York metropolitan area. Graduates are recruited by the "Big Four" global accounting firms as well as international, national, regional, and local accounting firms; corporations, and government agencies. In addition, student organizations regularly bring accounting professionals to campus to meet with accounting majors at formal and informal events.
