Greenwood Village, Colo. (PRWEB) October 23, 2014
Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSUGlobal.edu) is proud to announce its new 100 percent online Master of Professional Accounting degree for those looking to take their career to the next level as a CPA.
“This program was designed for those motivated students who seek the advanced knowledge and skills necessary to become CPAs,” said Dr. Jon Bellum, Provost and Senior Vice President at Colorado State University-Global Campus. “Becoming a CPA greatly increases the opportunities available to someone in the accounting field, and this program will provide invaluable resources to help students pass the CPA exam and become more effective financial leaders.”
In addition to providing the essential leadership and communication skills utilized daily by Certified Public Accountants, courses focus on the primary knowledge areas of Auditing, Financial Accounting and Reporting, Regulation, and Business Environments and Concepts covered in the Uniform CPA Exam. Students are able to purchase Wiley CPAexcel's industry-leading software at a significant discount to further help them study for the exam. CSU-Global’s online accounting master’s degree also allows students with a bachelor’s degree in accounting to reach the 150 credits needed to be licensed as a CPA by most states; although, students should check with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) for their state’s specific licensing requirements.
“According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, CPAs earn an average 10 percent more than other accountants,” continued Dr. Bellum. “This is because employers recognize the hard work, dedication, and advanced knowledge that comes through the certification process. Our MPA program is designed to help students earn that distinction as effectively as possible.”
