MBA with Accountancy Concentration Curriculum

Degree requirements include those outlined for the Master's Degree by the Graduate School.

The MBA with Accountancy Concentration is designed for students who have completed an undergraduate degree in Accounting. The courses that are part of the Accountancy Concentration help prepare students to sit for the CPA exam.

The required courses for the MBA with Accountancy Concentration degree include Phase I courses that provide business fundamentals normally covered in an undergraduate business degree program and Phase II courses that provide advanced study in accounting. Students with an undergraduate accounting degree generally have completed all or most of the Phase I courses and accounting prerequisites, thus are prepared to enroll immediately in Phase II courses. Students without an undergraduate degree in business or accounting generally must complete all or most of the Phase I courses and accounting prerequisites before beginning the Phase II course work. Students lacking no more than six hours of Phase I courses may enroll in Phase II courses while satisfying the remainder of their Phase I course work. However, students may not enroll in a Phase II course unless they have completed all prerequisites for the course.

Full-time and Part-time Flexibility

The MBA program at Eastern Illinois University is designed so that students can complete their program of study on a part-time or full-time basis. Classes offered at Eastern's campus in Charleston start at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Classes available in Champaign at Parkland College begin at 6:30 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. All MBA classes offered at Parkland or Eastern are taught by full-time, doctoral qualified faculty from EIU's School of Business.

As soon as all of the Phase I prerequisite courses are completed, off-campus, part-time students can complete the program within two years, taking two graduate level courses each semester.
