Requirements to Sit for CPA Exam in Kansas: 150 hours of post-secondary coursework are required to be eligible to sit for the Certified Public Accountant exam in Kansas. While the B.B.A. in Accounting with a Public Accounting Concentration will prepare the student academically to sit for the exam, it will not provide the required number of post-secondary hours. Students are encouraged to pursue a second degree in an area that complements their accounting degree. It is often possible to complete a double degree with 154 credit hours. A popular second degree is in finance, but other degree areas might include management information systems, marketing, or international business and economics. Students can also complete a minor or take a collection of courses in another business discipline to fulfill the 150 hours of post-secondary coursework.
