Irvine, Calif. (Dec. 11, 2003) -- The Graduate School of Management at University of California, Irvine, said it would offer an undergraduate minor in accounting starting in Fall 2004.

The program will consist of upper-division courses designed to prepare students for taking the CPA Exam. GSM anticipates that enrollment for the undergraduate minor in accounting will start next fall quarter at 80 students and will expand in future years.

The program was approved last week by the UCI Academic Senate's Council on Educational Policy. Currently, UCI students are limited to introductory accounting courses and must complete course work at other colleges if they wish to sit for the CPA Exam.

Several other University of California campuses offer accounting programs as a minor. GSM already has a large accounting program at the graduate level and, since 1985, has provided management courses at the undergraduate level for 350 students per year.
