Asbury University continues its tradition of excellence and market relevance with a new Master of Science in Accounting program that will launch this fall. The program provides students with a direct path to earning the 150 college credit hours required to become a Certified Public Accountant in Kentucky.
“The Master of Science in Accounting is designed to provide students with a direct path to becoming a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in Kentucky and to gain the knowledge needed to successfully complete the CPA exam,” Dr. Alesha Graves, dean of the Dayton School of Business, said. “But we also aim to provide education that goes beyond preparing for the exam. The program is also designed to incorporate Christian faith and values, along with the skills found in liberal arts universities. I think that is what makes our program unique. Students will exit the program with education that will allow them to not only be excellent accountants who help steward financial resources, but also equipped professionals with a solid foundation to be faith-filled Christian businessmen and women.”
The program is designed to be a +1 program where students pursuing an undergraduate degree in accounting can seamlessly enter the graduate program. They will also have the opportunity to take two graduate-level courses and receive credit for the undergraduate degree and the graduate degree. Graves also encourages mid-career professionals who desire to further their knowledge and skills to pursue this program.
“Asbury University’s Dayton School of Business prepares students to be the best for the world.” Dr. Kevin Brown, Asbury University President said. “The recently launched Master of Science in Accounting is the next step in preparing students to reach the next step in their career through flexible, rigorous, and student-centric education.”
The Master of Science in Accounting program is a new addition to an established Dayton School of Business, celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year. For more information on the Master of Science in Accounting program, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
