The MBA with a Concentration in Accounting is unique in that it provides MBA students who were not accounting undergraduate majors a core of five additional accounting courses in financial accounting, taxation, and audit, beyond the MBA’s accounting for managers class. It also provides 3 credits of business law, which currently satisfies the NJ educational requirements (18 graduate credits in accounting including financial accounting, management accounting, taxation, and audit) to sit for the CPA. Graduates of this program work as accountants for accounting firms, public and private companies, governmental agencies, and in related business fields.
Beginning Fall 2015! The Post-Master's Certificate in Accounting will be available to graduate students with an undergraduate business degree, who have not majored in accounting. The coursework will align with the MBA accounting track and provide a basic accounting sequence of courses that will meet the current NJ educational requirement of 18 graduate accounting credits including financial accounting, management accounting, taxation, and audit. A business degree will be the pre-requisite, since the certificate will not provide the general business course CPA requirements, and is not available to those with bachelor's degrees in accounting since course content would be redundant.
The U.S. Department of Education requires that we disclose certain information about academic programs that do not lead to a degree (e.g., certificate programs) but that prepare a student for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. The Post-Master's Certificate in Accounting program at Monmouth University is defined as gainful employment program. To review the required disclosures, click here.
