Placement and Students

Our Accounting programs provide a solid foundation for career paths in public accounting (auditing, taxation, consulting) in large, medium, and small firms; corporate accounting (including financial management, controllership, treasury, financial analysis, planning and budgeting, cost accounting, internal audit, systems, taxation, and general accounting); and government and nonprofit accounting.



NMSU accounting majors are recruited extensively by employers in public accounting practice and in corporate, governmental, and nonprofit organizations. Accounting employers come from all over the nation to recruit at NMSU. Upon graduation our students are competitive in the job market and obtain full-time employment in New Mexico and the region, including Texas, Arizona, Colorado and Nevada. Additionally, some of our graduates obtain full-time employment nationally in states such as New York, Florida, and Washington.
