The Management Accounting graduate certificate prepares you to use timely managerial accounting information to facilitate decision making for business owners, managers, and employees.
Courses are offered in convenient, seven-week sessions, which are available in several delivery modes: in-person, hybrid, or online. They may be taken as a stand-alone certificate, as an initial step toward, or concurrently with our Master of Professional Accounting.
Upon completion of the program, you’ll be able to:
- Develop a deep understanding of evaluating business performance using accounting information.
- Apply management accounting knowledge analyzing and offering recommendations to improve business performance.
Applicants must hold either (1) a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or (2) a tertiary (post-secondary) degree that is deemed comparable to a four-year bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution. International applicants may be required to satisfy an English proficiency requirement. The successful applicant is generally expected to have a minimum combined junior/senior grade-point average of 3.0 (B) on a 4.0 scale.
To be awarded the graduate certificate, students must successfully complete nine credits of course work consisting of six required credits and three elective credits. All courses must be completed with a minimum grade of C or better and an overall GPA of 3.0.
