Master of Accounting & Financial Management (MAFM)

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.
