Missouri Accounting Degree Options


Missouri's economy is varied, with no single dominant industry. St. Louis is the economic center of the state, but Kansas City is a business center, as well, focusing on manufacturing. Given the diversity of the economy, it is no surprise that 17,508 more people became employed between March 2016 and 2017, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Missouri Economic Research and Information Center reports that the field of accounting is so promising that it gave the highest rating possible to the profession – an A+.  The Center expects the number of accounting jobs to grow by 8.2 percent between 2014 and 2024.

A number of Fortune 500 and fast-growing firms make Missouri their headquarters. Among these are Monsanto, Express Scripts, Emerson Electric and Peabody Energy. Well-known brand names include Build-A-Bear Workshops, Panera Bread and Hallmark Cards. St. Louis is a regional banking center, which makes it home to the big national banks as well as to Missouri banks UMB Financial, Commerce Bancshares and Central Bancompany. The 'Big Four' accounting firms operate alongside local certified public accounting (CPA) firms such as Mayer Hoffman McCann and Kerber, Eck & Braeckel LLP.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics puts the average 2016 income for accountants in Missouri at $70,530 - an increase of nearly $8,700 over the previous five years. The Missouri Economic Research and Information Center tracked average entry-level 2015 wages at $41,567, while experienced accountants earned an average of $86,444 in the same year. 

Becoming a CPA in Missouri is a five-step process that begins with getting a bachelor's degree. With this prerequisite out of the way, you may next proceed to step two: passing the CPA exam. Steps three and four are passing the ethics exam and verifying that you have a year of experience working for a licensed CPA. Only then may you take step five: applying for licensure.

In addition, you will need to complete continuing education to keep your license up to date, and your career may also benefit from networking. One of the more active associations for accountants is the Missouri Society of CPAs (http://www.mocpa.org/). For sole practitioners, the Missouri Society of Accountants (http://www.missouri-accountants.com/) offers support on many levels. For certified management accountants, the Institute for Management Accountants has city-level chapters, which are part of the Heartland Regional Council (https://sites.google.com/site/imaheartlandcouncil/).
