Best Answer

It depends, but I will give you my personal experience to give you an idea. I go to the Ohio State University (Fisher College of Business), and we're on a quarter system here. I've been taking about 15 credits per quarter since my freshman year, and I should be done by spring of my senior year...so I would think the typical length is probably 4 years. This is for a bachelor's degree. I plan on taking the CPA exam, which from what I understand, if you pass the first try, then you can be licensed. But if not, then you have to go back for another year of school ("Masters in Accounting") in order to attempt the exam again....after that you can try as many times as you need to pass....however I do know of a few people who have completed their bachelor's in accounting in 3 years...I guess it just depends on how ambitious you are!

To become an accountant do you have to take a final exam?

It depends on what type of accountant you want to become. If you simply want to become an accountant of your family business, your Dad will never ask you about your degree. If you want to become an accountant in other business enterprises, they will definitely ask you about your final degree testimonials. If you want to become a Chartered Accountant, you have to qualify the exams and this is not an easy task. Life is not that easy as we think. And it is also not so difficult as we all fear about. Balance yourself and you will get what you want. But prepare for your final exams in accountancy.
