MBA in Accounting

New skills are necessary to develop and prepare students to compete in the global marketplace. Accounting professionals, in particular, are increasingly focused on using real-time information to anticipate and resolve issues. Emerging trends in a global, diversified economy require leaders to analyze and develop timely and accurate financial information to engage in improved resource allocation. Additionally, accounting professionals must ensure that not only is the financial information they report accurate and timely, but also that appropriate accounting systems are in place and compliant with statutory regulations.

In response to this, the MBA program in Accounting emphasizes both the theoretical understanding of emerging issues in the field and features an advanced curriculum in financial and managerial accounting best practices.

Skills and functions you will learn in the program include:

  • Adapting appropriate cost processes to manage production costs and segment development
  • Assessing an entity’s financial condition through timely and accurate financial information
  • Testing financial and statutory compliance through audits
  • Implementing and monitoring budgets to guide financial decisions
  • Critiquing accounting information systems to improve entity performance

An MBA with a concentration in Accounting will provide students with advanced financial skills that may contribute to providing the educational requirements needed to qualify for the CPA exam. Moreover, this program will benefit those currently in the accounting profession through enhanced skills and concepts.
