Students who have an undergraduate degree in mathematics or business can choose to focus their education on their career by completing a Master in Accounting program. More so than lower levels of study, a master's program can prepare students with real world knowledge and experience so they can start their career once they’ve graduated.

So what is an MA in Accounting? Technically, it’s a subcategory of mathematics but is actually where math meets business. At its most basic level, accounting is the practice of communicating information about a business to managers, shareholders, the IRS, and others. It’s also considered to be a technical job where precision and accuracy are vital skills. In addition to the mathematics skills required, programs in this field usually serve to prepare students with the reporting standards, business ethics, and other responsibilities that are part of the job.

Students in accounting may benefit from preparation for a very viable and important career. They can be heavily relied on upon graduation in what is often a fulfilling job. Additionally, students might gain access to a business school without having to compete in the more traditional business major.

The expenses involved with earning an MA in Accounting vary from program to program. The university and program you choose as well as the duration of the program are some of the factors that influence costs. Research your options and contact the admissions office of any school you’re considering before making a commitment.

There is usually not much job variety for graduates, but the demand for accountants is quite high. Nearly every company in the world has a need for a professional team of accountants, so jobs in this field are usually plentiful. Besides working for an existing company, it is possible to work independently and offer accounting services to individuals.

If you are ready to begin your education to become an accountant, start with a search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
