A master’s degree is the first level of graduate study and can be earned on a part or full-time basis. While it requires fewer years of schooling than a PhD, a master’s degree can help graduates earn higher level positions and advance in their careers.

What is a Master in Professional Accounting? In a general sense, it is all about crunching the numbers, but courses can vary across different programs. This program goes beyond basic coursework to provide an advanced curriculum. As a result, coursework can include foundation classes such as financial accounting, auditing and assurance, federal taxation and business taxation as well as contemporary issues in accounting, applied statistics for business decisions, financial decision making and corporate financial reporting. In order to help students execute the aforementioned tasks, some schools also offer courses in computer-based information systems.

Students graduate from this program with the ability to accurately evaluate and communicate in clear terms the financial positions of organizations. They can also distinguish between effective and inferior accounting methods, which may help improve their performance at work. Graduates acquire the knowledge to pass the CPA exam, as well, which is essential for career advancement in this field.

As with the vast majority of degrees, the cost of obtaining a Master in Professional Accounting is not the same for every student. Factors that impact cost include school tuition and the country in which each university is located.

The demand for skilled accountants has remained strong for many years. Careers in accounting run the gamut from entry-level positions to positions in upper management such as chief financial officers. Graduates can start off in roles including payroll clerks, accounts payable clerks and tax accountants and work their way up to higher level positions such as CPAs, budget analysts and certified internal auditors. There are even roles in forensics and government agencies for accountants.

The sky is the limit for those who earn a Master in Professional Accounting. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The MPA degree at West Texas A&M University can be earned in two ways. The traditional degree is a master’s degree earned after completing a bachelor’s degree. The second option is a program that integrates the undergraduate Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and the graduate Master of Professional Accounting degrees. Both degree paths provide a foundation for a career as a certified public accountant or to continue your path toward a doctorate degree. Increasingly, today’s engineers are expected to have interdisciplinary knowledge of all facets of engineering. The Master’s of Science in Engineering program is designed to prepare engineers for anything they’ll see in their career — even if it’s not the specialty they studied in undergraduate courses. In this program, students gain working knowledge of many engineering disciplines, from mechanical to civil, environmental to electrical, while also having the flexibility to concentrate on a specific area. This degree provides a rare opportunity to expand skills into all facets of engineering while augmenting skills in a chosen specialization. -
