Program Details


This online graduate degree prepares those who are seeking a career in the accounting field with options for students at any stage in their professional development.

The Master of Accountancy program is a 36-credit graduate program intended to prepare people with an undergraduate degree in business, or those who have successfully completed the equivalent undergraduate foundation in business, for a career in the public accounting profession. Students are not required to have an undergraduate degree in business. Those without this degree would only have to take up to five prerequisite courses to prepare for graduate accounting studies. This program prepares future certified public accountants (CPAs) to exercise their developed technical competence and interpersonal skills with integrity. It is, however, not exclusive for aspiring public accountants.
