Program Description:

Increasingly complex business methods, growing sophistication in auditing approaches, new tax laws, and demand for highly technical services require that you have an expanded knowledge base to become an effective, efficient accounting professional. Becoming a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) opens doors to opportunities not only in accounting firms, but also across the business landscape. The Penn State World Campus online accounting master's program helps you acquire the skills to successfully prepare for the CPA exam, and provides you with academic credentials to prepare you for licensure as a CPA.

If you have completed an undergraduate degree in business or accounting, and need to satisfy the 150-credit hour educational requirements for CPA licensure in Pennsylvania and most other states, this AACSB-accredited online accounting master's degree is designed for you.

Admission to the Master of Professional Accounting program does not require an undergraduate accounting degree, but it does require certain undergraduate accounting courses. Prerequisite accounting courses are listed on the "How to Apply" page.
