Mizzou creates online master’s degree in accounting

Officials with the University of Missouri announced on Thursday that students will have the option to pursue a master’s degree in accounting online.

Classes are scheduled to begin in August of 2018.

“Making our degree available online gives students and working professionals the chance to be part of a nationally ranked program and broadens their access to an extensive network of faculty and accounting industry peers,” Vairam Arunachalam, director of the MU School of Accountancy.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment of accountants and auditors will grow 10 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.

The master’s degree will require 30 credit hours, and when added to a student’s undergraduate program of study, students will be eligible to sit for the CPA exam.

The program is currently accepting applications for the fall 2018 semester.
