NMC transfer guide

To: Ferris State University - Main Campus

Program: accountancy/Finance

The Accountancy program is a professional career-oriented program that offers two concentrations. The Public Accounting concentration prepares a student for a career in public accounting. The Professional Directed concentration is a flexible program that allows students to design their degree to fit their own particular interests. Graduates qualify to take the professional accounting examination such as Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), and the Certified Management Accountant (CMA). An option offered to meet the State of Michigan 150 hour requirement for becoming a CPA is by attending a fifth year and obtaining either an MS-ISI or MBA degree from Ferris.
