UPB, St. Bonaventure sign MBA agreement

Pitt-Bradford has signed an agreement with St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, N.Y., that guarantees admission of UPB’s qualified accounting graduates into St. Bonaventure’s master of business administration program.

Completion of the MBA from St. Bonaventure will allow graduates to sit for the Certified Public Accountant exam in New York state. “Pitt-Bradford students can now seamlessly flow into the St. Bonaventure five-year program,” said Betsy Matz, chair of UPB’s Division of Management and Education. “This is important because we draw students from New York high schools who want to return to New York when they graduate from college.”

Students who choose to earn the MBA from St. Bonaventure will satisfy the New York State 150-hour educational requirements for CPA licensure.

Most states, but not Pennsylvania, require 150 hours of education as a condition for receiving a CPA license. The 150-hour requirement may be mandated for Pennsylvania CPA certificate applicants after Jan. 1, 2012, according to the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
