Accelerated B.B.A. to M.S.A.
Integrated curriculum allows students to earn both a bachelor's and a master's degree at an accelerated rate. Our graduates are in high demand and over the last 25 years have been placed at nearly 100 percent. In addition, the pass rate on the CPA exam is well above the national average for graduates of accelerated programs.
During the program, students have the option to complete a paid internship in either public accounting or in industry. These opportunities are throughout the Texas marketplace, as well as other global financial hubs such as New York, San Francisco, San Jose, and London.
At the graduate level, students choose between the Audit/Financial Reporting and Taxation concentrations. Graduates from both areas generally begin their careers in public accounting and often progress to partner within these firms. Throughout their careers, our graduates encounter a variety of exciting and challenging opportunities around the globe.
