Is the bridging program necessary even with a business degree? Any input appreciated!

I'm in my first year of my undergrad with accounting as my major
This is a 5 year program but I am leaning towards dropping my major and just getting a regular business degree, that I am aiming to finish in 3 years.
My goal is to become a CPA after 2 years of work experience(as required).
I'm aware that becoming a CPA takes 2 years and you must write an entrance exam to get in.
Since I am thinking about dropping my major (so I can finish 2 years earlier and start working) I'm pretty sure if you DONT have an accounting degree you are required to take the one year bridging program for courses you need to have before you begin the CPA program.

My question is if anybody knows the courses that you are required to take to exclude yourself from having to take the extra bridging program. Would I be able to take them at my university? I'm not to sure how that part works, any feedback is appreciated!
