Professional Accounting

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

An education in professional accounting provides the knowledge that students may need to work in the business realm. Classes offered can include finances of enterprises, macroeconomics, business law, finance accounting, auditing, taxation and financial institutions.
