Accounting Master's Degree Program

Despite slower job growth in other fields, the need for accounting professionals continues to increase.1 If you're looking to take advantage of this growth and streamline your career advancement, our accelerated Master's in Accounting program is designed for you. You could gain a foundation in current accounting issues while exploring coursework relevant to your professional development, such as CPA exam preparation, auditing or taxation.

If you're a CPA candidate, our Master's in Accounting 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.2

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.

A Unique Advantage

Keller's Master's in Accounting degree program integrates Becker's CPA Exam Review into its curriculum. Students who prepare with Becker pass the CPA Exam at double the rate of non-Becker candidates.1
