Take Your Career to the Next Level
Pace began as a humble one-room accounting school in 1906. We've expanded greatly since then, but have never lost sight of our original mission—to prepare students for rewarding and impactful careers. Among the many ways a Lubin education will make you stand out? Our dual accreditation in business and accounting by AACSB International—the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business is an elite distinction shared by fewer than 2% of schools in the world offering business degree programs. With 78,000 alumni working around the globe—including 2,100 at Big Four accounting firms—you'll build a powerful network of connections to take with you when you graduate.
At the undergraduate level, we offer two accounting majors—one with a CPA emphasis and one with a more broad-based course of study, which allows students to develop expertise in other related areas such as finance or information systems. At the graduate level, we offer both MBA and MS degrees, as well as a fully online option, which meet the New York State 150-hour requirement to sit for the CPA exam. We also offer an MS in Accounting Data Analytics and Technologies, developed in response to current market demand for accountants who are trained in analytics and data-driven decision-making. Several combined programs in accounting provide a fast track for students to earn an undergraduate and graduate degree. For non-degree students, a general accounting certificate offers short-term concentrated study in accounting.

Lubin and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)'s landmark partnership links ACCA's globally recognized qualification program to coursework at Lubin, allowing students to qualify for exemptions from ACCA's prestigious exams.
Lubin offers exceptional facilities that recreate environments students encounter in the marketplace. In New York City, our Bloomberg Lab features terminals, a real-time stock ticker and news feed, and a videoconference system that is used to connect to Bloomberg for real time lessons and instruction. In Westchester, the EY Accounting Lab is staffed by peer tutors who provide assistance in foundation and upper-level accounting courses.
