    Accounting & Financial Management Master's Degree Program

    Taught from the practitioner's perspective, our curriculum in the Master of Accounting & Financial Management (MAFM) degree program can help you master the skills necessary to break through in the world of accounting and finance. The Master of Accounting and Financial Management program covers more than management coursework to provide an education that includes accounting and financial skills, with classes in managerial accounting, financial analysis, external and operational auditing, and taxation.

    Students are also able to further focus their Master of Accounting & Financial Management program with one of three emphases: Finance, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE).

    If you're a CPA candidate, our Master's in Accounting & Financial Management program curriculum can put you at a unique advantage because it integrates Becker Professional Education's proven CPA Exam Review. Students who prepare with Becker pass the CPA Exam at double the rate of non-Becker candidates.1

    For over 50 years, Becker has been the leader in CPA review preparing over 400,000 candidates for the CPA Exam. And because Becker's proven exam review is infused into Keller's CPA preparation courses, you can prepare for the CPA Exam and earn your master's degree simultaneously, helping you save time and tuition. Additionally, you can earn academic credits that may help satisfy the sitting and/or licensing requirements in your state. Students must check with their state board of accountancy for eligibility requirements.

What's an emphasis?

Our Specialized Master's Degree Programs have different areas of study for those with different professional areas of interest or expertise. When you choose one of these areas, you've emphasized a certain set of information in your course load; that's why we say, for example, "a Master of Accounting & Financial Management with a CPA emphasis."

What's a CPA and a CFE?

A Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) are different roles within the accounting field. Students can focus their Master of Accounting & Financial Management program by choosing one of the two above emphases.

Can I obtain a CPA license from Keller?

Though we cannot grant a CPA license, we do offer CPA exam preparation courses that integrate Becker Professional Education's CPA Exam Review Methodology. You can incorporate CPA exam prep courses as part of your coursework for programs such as Master of Accounting & Financial Management, MBA with an Accounting Concentration or Graduate Certificate in CPA Preparation.
