Master of Accountancy / Accounting
University of Arizona Global Campus

Program Details

Earn your Master of Accountancy online from Forbes School of Business & Technology at the University of Arizona Global Campus. In this IACBE accredited accounting program, which has also received specialized accreditation for accounting by the IACBE, you will evaluate how to research complex accounting issues using professional resources. Many traditional campus-based master’s in accounting programs require you to first successfully pass the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) exam before being admitted. Typical test preparation is rigorous, expensive, and time-consuming. The master of accountancy from the University of Arizona Global Campus is an online program that does not require you to take the GMAT exam for admission purposes, giving you a more affordable and flexible online master’s degree. Prepare yourself for a career in accounting by enhancing your analytical, communication, and decision making skills that will help you apply the technical knowledge that you will also gain from this program.

Develop and strengthen your organizational and leadership skills with a specialization in Accounting. When you add the Accounting specialization to your degree program, you will be able to supplement your learning with courses designed to dive deeper into topics such as advanced accounting, auditing, tax research, and foreign currency transaction reporting.

Successful completion of this program by itself does not qualify a student to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination. All prospective students should contact individual state boards of accounting for additional information relating to licensure requirements (e.g., education and work experience and any potential restrictions, such as prior criminal convictions) prior to enrolling.
