Master of Accountancy, Graduate Certificate in Accounting
Both the Online and On-Campus MAc students follow the same curriculum and receive the same AACSB International accredited degree, a Master of Accountancy. The type of program you pursue depends upon your lifestyle and need for flexibility.
The On-Campus MAc Program integrates the disciplines within the accounting profession and enhances key skills. Students are exposed to research skills and additional technical content that are not only critical for the CPA exam, but also for application in their future career. The CPA exam pass rates of Auburn MAc students are an astounding 10 times the national average for first time candidates. Team work and a study abroad component equip Auburn’s on-campus graduates for success in today’s global business world. These graduates also command 10 to 20 percent higher starting salaries than bachelor’s degree holders.
The Online MAc Program is designed to provide degree seekers with greater flexibility in obtaining their degree. This program is perfect for those who are unable to make the traditional On-Campus program fit their lifestyle due to family and professional demands. Technology enables the program to provide Online students with a “virtual” On-Campus experience, allowing them to watch actual class lectures at times convenient to their schedule. Online students have access to faculty resources for questions and guidance, just like their On-Campus counterparts. Once they obtain their MAc, Online students often receive the recognition and promotion they previously lacked professionally. The flexibility and quality of the degree make this option an excellent value. Students may complete the degree in only two years while working full-time.
Auburn University's Master of Accountancy Program is accredited by AACSB International.
