Southern Utah University is helping accountants advance their careers through the online Master of Accountancy program. This program allows students to gain the requisite professional accounting experience while working toward a CPA license. It is taught by accounting professionals with real world experience; graduates can expect nearly 100% job placement. This number is not surprising because this program is ranked in the top 50 best online business graduate programs by U.S. News & World Report. Accounting students can also opt to earn an MBA concurrently with their MAcc for an additional 15 credits.
As tax code and government regulation become more robust, it is important that institutions (public, private, and nonprofit) use the expertise of accountants in order to stay up-to-date and compliant with these financial guidelines. Because of this need, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has stated that the accounting field is growing at an above average rate of 11%. This increase is not just in a single industry; accountants are responsible for monetary regulation in the global economy.
