Albers School of Business and Economics

Master of Professional Accounting

The Master of Professional Accounting program at Albers takes a two-pronged approach to accounting education:

  • a thorough and rigorous academic program of accounting studies in the classroom, with a strong grounding in computer applications
  • a broad mix of voluntary activities outside of the classroom designed to augment development of the student's skills in team work, organization, and communication

The Albers accounting program takes an active role in the placement of accounting students into their chosen profession by general exposure to the profession through student accounting organizations - the Accounting Society and Beta Alpha Psi, the accounting internship program, and formal career counseling and job placement services.
