Accounting & Finance Degree

Base Game University Life

A degree in Accounting and Finance can open up a wealth of opportunities for the academically minded Sim. From a logical mind to a career in Accounting, the possibilities are limitless for the Sim dedicated enough to complete the Masters program.

The first of the ‘degree’ careers is the Accounting and Finance Degree. This degree is a Master’s Degree and therefore has 4 levels. For a sim to enrol, they need 1 level in both Logic and Charisma and can enrol at the School of Business. It requires the University Expansion pack. For more information of the fake degrees, please visit the Deans Office.

This ‘degree’ career requires the Nraas Careers mod in order for it to show up.

Each level has 5 opportunities available for the student to participate in. The Accounting and Finance degree participates in the University Business Challenge which is a four-part opportunity set with one opportunity per level.

The degree promotes into the Accountant Career although the career is not compulsory. If your Sim graduates with a BA in Accounting and Finance, they can promote into level 6 of the Accountant career. If your sim graduates with an MA in Accounting and Finance, they can promote into level 8 of the Accountant Career.

I’m currently unable to add expansion pack items as careers or opportunity rewards so I’ve made the University Diploma plaque from the Uni expansion buyable for §0. It can be hung on the wall and requires the University Expansion Pack.

There are no uniforms set. I recommend visiting the University Essentials page for a list of recommended mods to enhance the experience.

I hope you enjoy this alternative to the University system as much as I enjoyed making it. There are many more to come (currently 51 altogether!). If you have any question, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    This looks so well-designed! Thank you for doing all this hard work. I love the sounds of this course, and also the others you have in the works. I’m also looking forward to seeing your own game play, to get a sense of how everything fits together.

    I also just wanted to ask, although these degrees are not normally available in the university world, would they be if one were to use Nraas Traveler to send sims to Sims Uni, and then set ‘treat as vacation’ (in the Traveler’ options) to false (which should allow sims to have normal jobs)?

      how does the graduating work? I had my sim finish his Bachelor (he promoted to Master lvl 1). Now I had him quit the degree and join your accountant career. He is lvl 1 in the career, not 6. Should graduation be something that actually somehow happens and was the quitting the wrong way to go? Thank you for your advice 🙂

        Hi there Marie!
        When he was at the last level of his Bachelor, he should have received a ‘Graduation’ opportunity which would have allowed him to go to his graduation.
        After that, you get the sim to join the Accountant career instead of quitting – that way the transfer carries over correctly. 🙂
        To solve that, you can get him back into the ‘Degree’ and as long as he’s at Bachelor Level 3, you can simply join the Accountant career – no quitting necessary! 🙂

    Hi! I tried getting your degrees to work, but sadly couldn’t 😦 Do you have any advice for me? I have Nraas Career and the rabbithole rugs, which work as they should as far as I can tell. I have saved & exited and rechecked multiple times and still nothing new on the rabbitholes Science & Business School. Am I missing something? Thanks 🙂


      1. John

        I too am having the same problem. I have cleared game caches and tried multiple Sims with the correct prerequisites,


      2. missyhissy Post author

        Have you put down the Business School rabbithole in that game session? Because they, like custom careers, don’t show up until you’ve saved, quit and reloaded the game.


      3. John

        I have saved, quit, and reloaded. I am now able to “Enroll in Accounting & Finance”. However, the icon for the action appears in the upper left hand corner but nothing seems to happen when the action is completed.


      4. missyhissy Post author

        Glad to hear you can enrol. Hmm, that’s a weird one though, not had that. Nothing shows up on your sim’s job panel? Sometimes it takes a little while to happen. Does your sim exit the building once the action has completed, and the icon goes away?

    i have the art building in my home town and have the mod downloaded but there is no enroll opportunity when going to the art school rabbit hole


      1. Maddie
