BUSINESS GRADUATE PROGRAMS
CONCENTRATION IN ACCOUNTING

MBA or MS in Accounting

Accounting

The University of Dallas is recognized as a degree-granting institution by the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy.

The University of Dallas MBA in Accounting is designed for three groups of managers:

  • The non-accountant manager who is challenged with accounting issues - this MBA concentration provides a strong core of management knowledge and tools complemented by an in depth background in accounting principles and skills.
  • The CPA, who already possesses the technical skills of accounting, but desires to expand his or her managerial skills and add additional areas of accounting knowledge.
  • Managers who intend to eventually take the CPA exam. This concentration can provide added value through the accounting coursework earned while completing the MBA degree.
