Online Masters of Accounting program ranked No. 13 by Masters in Accounting
The University’s online masters of accounting program (WebMAcc) was recently recognized in the top 15 of the “Top Ranked Online Master’s in Accounting Programs” by MastersInAccounting.info.
A leading career and education website focused on graduate programs in accounting and finance, Master’s in Accounting’s Top Schools ranking is based on a proprietary methodology designed to measure academic quality, affordability and graduate success. The methodology used to determine the ranking considers factors such as the average tuition cost per online credit hour; program accreditation by the AACSB, ACBSP or IACBE; the average mid-career pay of alumni; and school rankings according to U.S. News & World Report in the regional, national and online categories. Another part of the criteria to be considered was not-for-profit status.
“Enrollment in online degree programs is increasing, and schools are responding by offering more distance education programs at the graduate level – which can be particularly convenient for those who are already working full-time,” said Rob Voce, founder of Masters in Accounting. “Our ranking is designed to help these prospective students learn about and compare first-rate online master’s in accounting programs that offer long-term value.”
The Top Online Master’s in Accounting Programs list includes detailed information on schools’ admissions statistics and requirements as well as tuition comparisons. For the top-ranking schools, the list also provides school acceptance rates, profiles of available programs and concentration options, core coursework requirements and focus area, and employment and debt statistics for 2014-2015 graduates.
