Accountancy, MAcc (Accounting) *

You want to push your accounting career to the ultimate level, for example, with a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation. But it takes more than a bachelor’s degree and work experience to get there. It takes 120 hours of post-secondary education credit to even sit for the CPA exam in Florida, and another 30 to obtain the designation after passing all four parts of the CPA exam. What can you do to get the additional graduate hours you need as well as the essential accounting insights and strategies to pass?

Keiser University has the answer. Our Master of Accountancy (MAcc) was specifically developed with helping accounting professionals earn the credit and gain the accounting skills they need to pursue professional certifications such as the CPA, Certified Financial Analyst (CFA), Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), or any other accounting-related designation.

"A relocation to Florida led me to Keiser after a poor experience at another University. I happened upon colleagues that graduated from the KU program and it came highly recommended by them. The program quality, small student to teacher ratio and a faculty support network that truly cares is the reason I chose KU!"

I’m currently pursing my MBA at Keiser and plan to be a three time graduate of Keiser University!"
