Educated to Lead. Inspired to Achieve.



Since the college was established in 1851, Westminster has been educating and inspiring business leaders who make a true difference in their organizations. All accounting majors who complete Westminster’s program are eligible to sit for the CPA exam, and the strength of our faculty and alumni connections propel our graduates to success.

Alumni Success Stories

Accelerated Path to Master's Degree

Our 4+1 partnership combines Westminster’s strength in developing business leaders at the undergraduate level with Washington University’s highly regarded Master of Accounting program at the Olin School of Business, ranked as one of the top 20 business schools in the nation. Graduate with two degrees, prepared to sit for the CPA exam – and take advantage of strong alumni networking opportunities from two top schools.
The close, personal interaction with Westminster professors — who are CPAs themselves — creates a real opportunity to learn and prepare for a job in that field. I know several individuals who have secured jobs with Big Four and regional accounting firms, including two of us who are now partners in those firms.
