non-accounting maj. seeks online macc program leading to CPA [#permalink] New post 07 Aug 2009, 08:38
Econ major. no accounting courses in college, but took 2 fin, 1 MIS, and 1 marketing course.
took a job as a fund accountant at a HF administrator, been here for 3 years.
took level 2 CFA in 6/09, results come in 11 days.

considering CPA but would have to take all the accounting courses.
my ideal program would be one where i could get a MACC while taking mostly courses that would be undergrad level. oh and i would greatly prefer a program that has a (somewhat) decently respected name AND allows courses to be taken online.
my plan would then be to start taking the online courses, and try to take the test somewhat concurrently with the classes.

i am doubtful that my ideal program exists, but does anyone know of an option that comes close? the online feature would be a huge plus (and i know that phoenix and other similar online programs dont have an amazing rep. plus its for accounting majors, no?)

Thanks a lot!

I don't know much about MS Accounting degrees offered online but I saw the oddest thing while researching this online.

http://www.business.uconn.edu/msaccounting/

Apparently UCONN offers an online MS Accounting degree and it is AACSB accredited....which would most likely allow one to sit for a CPA exam.......(theoretically possible but it differs by state....but AACSB is pretty much widely accepted)

I am not big fan of online MS degrees but if you really want to get it online, check that program out. UCONN beats U of Phoenix in my opinion. (Again, I know nothing about UCONN's online degree program. I am just suggesting one since you wanted an alternative option)

thanks for the response!
while it's nice to see that there are [finally] starting to be accredited online programs like this one, i guess if they are accredited they probably will require pre-reqs as this one does [accounting and other business ones], so i guess i probably won't find my trifecta of
1 - accredited
2 - online
3 - does not require accounting major [or any accounting course pre-reqs]
