MBA or MS?
The 33-hour MS degree is designed for students who seek in-depth graduate study of
Accounting and requires the completion of an individual research project. The 42-hour
MBA degree with an Accounting concentration is designed for students who want to incorporate
Accounting education into their graduate business program. MBA students at the University
of Dallas complete a real-world consulting project called The Capstone Experience.
The University of Dallas MS/MBA in Accounting programs are AACSB accredited programs
distinctive in the commitment to experiential learning and the development of principled
and moral leaders. Students who attend UD learn through both textbook and real world
situations. In order to support the teaching and learning experience presented in
our program, faculty in each discipline have both business experience and outstanding
academic qualifications. Further enriching this environment, many of our students
are already "seasoned" business professionals in the workplace and bring their own
experiences into the classroom. Learning in this manner better prepares our students
for a successful professional career.
What are my career options?
Upon graduation students are prepared to sit for the CPA exam and begin a career in
public accounting in fields such as assurance, taxation, consulting or forensic accounting.
Others will choose career paths in business or industry in areas such as financial
reporting, managerial accounting, financial analysis or treasury functions. Some students
will choose to begin their careers in governmental or nonprofit organizations.
