Georgia Southern Online Program Ranked 12th in U.S.
The Georgia Southern University Online Accounting program (WebMAcc) was ranked 12th in the Top 30 Online Master’s in Accounting Degree Programs 2015 by online-accounting-degrees.net. In its second year of existence, the WebMAcc offered within the Georgia Southern College of Business Administration School of Accountancy helps students earn a graduate degree without much interruption to their personal and professional lives.
Online-accounting-degrees.net based the rankings on AACSB accreditation and the level of recognition the school has received from three of the most respected college ranking authorities, Forbes Top 100/300/700, U.S. News Ranking/Online Business/Regional, and Academic Ranking of World Universities Business/Economics Top 100/200.
Ranking higher than Texas A&M University and Florida Atlantic University, the Georgia Southern WebMAcc uses a team-based approach to online learning, placing students on teams of four to five students. These teams work together throughout the 30 semester-hour program/six semesters and provide motivation, help, and strive for a common goal of graduating from an AACSB accredited accounting program. The online courses are identical in content to the traditional courses, with the benefit of a flexible, online delivery system.
“We believe the recognition reflects the quality of our program, faculty and students,” says Gordon N. Smith, director of graduate business programs in the Georgia Southern University College of Business. “Our online and campus graduate accounting programs deliver for our students and their companies.”
