MBA in Accounting Degree Program Curriculum

Herzing's MBA in Accounting program will prepare you with the necessary skills and academic knowledge for management positions in various business enterprises, with a concentration of courses in accounting. These career opportunities may be in areas such as accounting, finance, business administration, sales, marketing, human resources, information systems, and production or operations for the existing or emerging manager.

In addition to gaining a solid foundation of business and leadership skills, upon completion of this program, you will be prepared to evalutate business situations using advanced accounting concepts and methods. You will also be prepared to sit for the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exam from the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). Achieving the CMA demonstrates your professional expertise in financial planning, analysis, control, decision support, and professional ethics.

It is important to note that this MBA program, even when combined with the Bachelor of Science in Accounting program at Herzing University, may not fulfill all of the requirements for graduates to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam or apply for licensure in some states or jurisdictions. Many states require a specific number of graduate accounting classes as well as specific graduate accounting courses. Others may require several years of professional experience. This program is not designed to fulfill any of those requirements
