The MBA in professional accounting allows you to earn an MBA and qualify for the New York CPA exam in a single program of study. If you have an undergraduate or graduate degree in majors other than accounting, the program makes it possible for you to earn an accounting degree and prepare to enter the accounting profession.

Benefit from the department’s close ties with business leaders including members of the Council on Accountancy, who often provide internship opportunities, permanent jobs, and valuable advice. You’ll complete an internship in public accounting, industry or government for hand-on experience. The  full-time program allows you  to complete your degree in as little as two years.
