* The on-campus format incorporates various required global education activities into the curriculum. Students will receive an additional global education credit upon completion of these activities.

** Online students with accounting-heavy backgrounds may be eligible for course waivers or substitutions based on a review of previous courses completed during their undergraduate studies. Dependent on course-waiver volume, online students starting the program in January or March 2018 will complete 33-45 credits, online students starting in June 2018 will complete 36-48 credits. (A two-credit Data Analytics course and the global education credit will be added to the required curriculum in June 2018.)
