Rochester Institute of Technology
The Rochester Institute of Technology is a private university that offers excellent accounting programs. Students will have access to numerous resources, including an on-campus career center, computer labs and libraries. RIT also has many options for internships and co-ops, both locally in the surrounding area as well as nationally through their work study program. The college’s small class sizes allow students to get to know each other better, which can help ensure they feel comfortable asking questions if they don’t understand something in class or during homework assignments.
RIT is one of only two schools on this list that offers an online Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree program; however, it may not be right for everyone so we recommend speaking with an advisor before deciding whether or not it’s right for you (more about this below).
