Along with other major oil-producing states, Oklahoma’s economy suffered when oil prices hit a 12-year low in early 2016. However, other aspects of the state’s economy are booming, particularly Oklahoma’s wind industry.  With many other industry segments performing well, the future for accountants in Oklahoma looks promising.  The state’s Employment Security Commission predicts that the number of jobs for accountants will increase by 17.4% between 2014 and 2024, generating 720 jobs on average each year.

The Oklahoma Economic Indicators Report, which was released in 2017, ranks trade and transportation as the largest business segment, amounting to 18.3 percent of the gross state product. Mining is a close second, followed by financial activities.

Fortune 500 companies in the state are in the energy and manufacturing fields and include Chesapeake Energy, Devon Energy, Williams and Oneok. Nearly 25 companies in Oklahoma made the Inc. 5000, a list of fast-growth, entrepreneurial companies. All the 'big four' certified public accountant (CPA) firms are here, as are some regional firms. Hogan Taylor has offices in several Oklahoma cities as does Eide Bailly, one of the largest firms with operations here.

The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission estimates the average wage of an accountant in the state to be $67,267, while experienced accountants average $101,504.

The path to becoming a CPA begins with earning your bachelor's degree with a major in accounting. You must clock 150 semester hours, 36 of which must be in accounting courses. After passing the four-part state-administered CPA exam, which takes 14 hours to complete, you must meet one more requirement. You need 1,800 hours of work experience under the supervision of a licensed CPA.

The Oklahoma Society of Accountants (http://www.ospa.org/) offers a busy calendar of networking events, and pairs those with continuing professional education classes you need to keep your license current. For certified management accountants (CMAs), the Heartland Council of the Institute of Management Accountants (https://sites.google.com/site/imaheartlandcouncil/) has active city chapters in Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
