Washburn University Adds Master of Accountancy Degree

Topeka, Kan. (April 15, 2013) – This fall, Washburn University’s School of Business will offer the Master of Accountancy (MAcc) degree in two flexible, education paths, including the region’s only evening program. Applications are being accepted now for enrollment in the 2013 fall semester. The 3+2 Program gives undergraduate accounting majors the ability to simultaneously work on their undergraduate and master’s degrees and, in the process, add just one additional year of college. The Flexible Program is an evening-based path for working professionals who have a bachelor degree equivalent to Washburn University’s undergraduate accounting degree. The MAcc program can be completed in as little as 12 months or over a period of up to five years. Both paths also offer students the necessary hours to become eligible for the CPA exam. More information about the Washburn MAcc program can be found at washburn.edu/MAcc.
“The MAcc is a great addition to the Business School’s degree repertoire and consistent with our mission of providing high-quality business education programs. It is affordable option for students seeking to work in the accounting field,” said David Sollars, dean of the Washburn School of Business. “Students enrolled in this program have the ability to expand their marketability and benefit from a high-quality graduate degree in accounting. The MAcc program will also prepare students for the CPA exam and other professional certifications.” The Washburn University School of Business degree programs are accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) – a distinction only given to the top 5 percent of business programs in the world. In addition, the School has been named an outstanding business school by The Princeton Review for the sixth consecutive year. Washburn offered its first business degree program in 1946, and today boasts more than 7,000 Washburn business alumni. The School also hosts the Washburn University Small Business Development Center (WUSBDC), serving small businesses and fledgling entrepreneurs in a nine-county region from offices in Topeka, Manhattan and Wetmore.
