College for Women | School of Business
Women with financial and accounting skills are in high demand and often move into leadership positions. An accounting degree from the St. Paul campus of St. Catherine University will teach you how to compare and interpret financial information so you make good business decisions and clearly communicate the implications.
Learn from Women Role Models in Class and in Businesses
Classes involve discussion, case studies, teamwork, and ethics — a curricular commitment that has made us a model for other universities. You conduct an actual audit in the auditing course.
You'll apply classroom knowledge at a real business in our supervised internship course, Accounting Practicum. St. Kate's accounting major offers hands-on experience and small classes of 14-20 students. Accounting graduates have secured jobs in their field at leading firms such as PwC, KPMG, Deloitte, 3M, Ecolab, and Wipfli.
Outstanding women role models and accomplished executives participate on campus as guest speakers, mentors, and recruiters, including many St. Kate's alumnae.
Nearly all St. Kate’s accounting majors secure jobs in their field within two months of graduation. We will prepare you for many career options, including:
- public accounting
- management accounting
- government accounting
- tax accounting
- internal auditing
You will also have the foundation you need to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Accounting is also a basic preparation for fraud examiners, consultants, and managers in non-accounting areas.
