The online Master of Accountancy can be a stepping stone to a CPA or preparation for a career in public accounting, corporate accounting, internal auditing, or accounting in non-profit organizations. The program provides the technical skills, competencies, knowledge, and judgment to succeed as an accounting professional and is largely based on the published content specifications of the Uniform CPA Exam. Designed for students with little or no previous accounting background, the program focuses on confirmed accounting principles such as using the latest technologies and methodologies to plan, execute, and analyze an organization's performance; applying tax rules and regulations to individuals and business enterprises; and analyzing cost, accounting data, and other information to prepare reports for external and internal decision-making.
Must hold a bachelor’s degree or higher from a regionally accredited college or university where an overall GPA of 2.5, or where a GPA of 2.75 or higher was achieved in the last 90 quarter units (Students with a GPA of 2.0 to 2.49 may be admitted to the University if they have a satisfactory score on one of the following tests: GMAT, GRE, Miller Analogies Test, or an approved, standardized program-specific exam.)
