Major Advising Page - Accounting

Though you cannot take specific ACC courses abroad, there is ample opportunity for you to take other business and required courses abroad that give students the opportunity to expand your cultural awareness, make new friends, and grow your personal and professional networks. 

Accounting majors who wish to study overseas should begin the advising process as early as possible in order to determine the proper sequencing of courses to ensure they can include a summer or semester abroad into their plans. It should be noted that first-year VSB students cannot study abroad (with the exception of the Global Citizens Program), and students must meet prerequisite requirements for their overseas institution.

Tell your academic advisor that you are interested in study abroad at each registration appointment. Together, identify the best terms to go abroad, based on the courses in your four-year-plan. Some things to consider for ACC majors: 

  • You cannot take ACC courses abroad
  • To maximize credits, ACC majors should look to save some of the following courses for their time abroad: ECO 3108, HUM EL, SOCNATSCI, BEHASCI, and THL EL
  • ACC students who are completing the 150 credit-hour CPA certification have slightly more flexibility for study abroad. These students should consider programs where they are able to complete 18 credits while abroad.

Search the OEA Course Approval History database to select from more than 3,000 study abroad courses that have already been pre-approved for liberal education requirements and a growing list of technical courses.

The Course Approval History database is not all-inclusive and students can work with an OEA advisor to submit additional courses for review.

Don't forget - VSB has a list of policies and limitations specifically focused on study abroad. Make sure you're aware of these as you plan your overseas experience.

Timing
This image shows when students can study abroad for their specific major. With the exception of the Global Citizens Program, first-year students are not permitted to study abroad. Most VSB students will go abroad in the Spring of Sophomore year or in their Junior year.

 

Please consult with your Clay Center Advisor to discuss that best time for you to study abroad.

Study abroad opportunities are not limited to formal instruction. Consider taking advantage of the unique research, internship, and fieldwork opportunities available in different regions of the world. This not only expands your personal and professional network, but gives you critical intercultural skills as well as direct hands-on experience.

It is important to plan ahead as it is not uncommon for scholarship deadlines to occur much earlier than a Villanova or program application deadlines.

There are many scholarships available for students through Villanova University, our partner programs and other external sources, like the US Government. The OEA can help students with the scholarship search and application process. If a scholarship is found outside of the OEA scholarship page, students should have it reviewed by the OEA to determine if it is a viable option.
