June 7 – Cedarville University has added a new Master of Business Administration (MBA) concentration to meet the needs of students and the business community.
The new MBA accounting concentration is a 36 credit hour program that will include the nine core courses from other MBA concentrations, with the addition of three accounting courses that can be taken in person or online.
“(This) concentration is now available to students who wish to integrate key business principles into a biblical worldview approach to education,” according to the university.
The program will provide baccalaureate-prepared accounting majors with additional hours toward the 150-credit hour requirement for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. It will help students earn CPA certification while gaining knowledge and earning a graduate degree without having to change institutions, and will allow them to take up to two courses towards their MBA during first cycle.
John Delano, associate dean at the business school, said the program is designed for students who want to focus on their accounting career.
“A Cedarville MBA with a concentration in accounting will prepare our graduates well for management accounting positions in public and private accounting firms,” he said.
Students who apply and begin their MBA in July or August will be eligible for a $1,000 Success Scholarship.
