Innovative Masters of Accounting

Innovative Masters of Accounting (MAcc) or Masters of Professional Accountancy (MPAcc) offer either a multidisciplinary curriculum (combination of finance, accounting, and information systems) or a niche specific specialization (forensics accounting or accounting information systems or controllership). If you know of a program that responds to either characteristics but is not listed on here, please jump to the Contact Page and drop me a note.

    I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the net will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    That’s the smart thinking we could all benefit from.

    Hello, I was just wondering if you know of any MACC programs that don’t have any prerequisites. I have a BA in Economics and I don’t really want to take so many prerequisites.

    Hi! I want to prepare for the CPA exam. I am taking it after I get my undergraduate degree in Accounting. What suggestions if any do you have for learning the parts of the exam I have not taken classes over, such as Government and Non-Profit Accounting? Have you found CPA review courses helpful in covering this and similar master level courses?

    Thank you. This website is a great idea! Wish you the best!

      Thank you for your comment and your positive feedback. To answer your first question, it all depends on how good of a self learner you are. I can’t speak to CPA review courses or Master programs preparing students for the CPA Exam. I would suggest that you seek the advice of one of your professors or of somebody who recently passed all sections of the CPA exam. I hope this helps.
      Good luck with everything!

    I already finish my Master in Accounting at NOVA Southeastern University. I want to specialize in Forensic Accounting and the university did not offered me that option.

    Additional to that, the cost per credit hour is very high.

    Florida Atlantic University has a Master degree in Forensic Accounting, but they do not allow you to take the only the classes that you need, if you already have a Master in Accounting (general) from another university.

      Thank you for taking the time to submit a comment.

      If you are interested in becoming a forensic accountant, I would suggest that you consider first obtaining your CPA license if you haven't done so already. Additionally you should consider obtaining either CFE (Certified Fraud Examiner) or the CFF (Certified in Financial Forensics) credential. You don't have to take forensic accounting classes in order to sit for these exams. Last but not least, in your career search, you should be targeting accounting firms with fraud prevention and detection or forensic and ligation support services. Here is a PDF file from the AICPA outlining some of the key characteristics of effective forensic accountants. I hope you find it helpful. Let me know if I can be of further help.

      Good luck with everything!
