The Accountancy program at North Dakota State University emphasizes technical competency, accounting theory, and research skills necessary for students to start and excel in their accounting careers. Students will be prepared to identify accounting issues, research the appropriate standards and tax law, analyze data, present possible solutions and recommend actions. Qualified students may complete the program in 11 months. However, students are welcome to earn their degree on a part-time or full-time basis. In addition, students with undergraduate degrees in other areas of business or even unrelated to business can enter the graduate program to prepare for a challenging and rewarding accounting career once they have completed the prerequisite accounting core courses.
The Master of Accountancy program at NDSU is designed for students wishing to enter and accelerate their careers in public accounting, private industry, fraud investigation, or cost management. Students will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in their chosen area and also enhance their ability to pass professional certifications, such as the Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Management Accountant (CMA), and/or Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). Our approach to learning involves creating a collaborative environment in which students can further develop a deeper understanding and knowledge of accounting and their critical thinking and analytical skills. We believe our face-to-face classes allow students to develop close relationships with their colleagues and the faculty. Such an environment encourages a strong learning community where important questions can be asked and answered.
Through the College of Business at NDSU, the Master of Accountancy program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
