Accounting Masters Degree Programs

A masters of accounting degree is essential if you want to progress as a public accountant. These degrees are professional graduate programs that have been designed to be studied by students who want to work within the public sector or an institution that requires Certified Public Accounting (CPA) registration for its accounting personnel. Most states within the United States of America will require a student to have completed one hundred and fifty hours of studying prior to sitting the CPA exam.


This page provides information on what the courses are, what employers expect, certification, and what you can earn after completing the program. If you are interested in taking accountancy at graduate level, you may also like to look at the masters in forensic accounting page.
