Take your accounting career to the next level with Rider University’s Master of Accountancy program, one of only two schools in New Jersey with AACSB accreditation in accounting.


The courses in the Accountancy program offered by Rider University are taught in small sections, usually by full-time faculty holding doctoral degrees. Most are engaged in research in their fields and have business experience as well. 

Since most students are employed in professional or managerial positions, they bring a wealth of business experience to share. Students who wish to gain experience in the field of accounting are encouraged to participate in internships.  Opportunities are available throughout the New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania tri-state area.
