Online MAC student Leanne Fredericks discusses the flexibility, student experience, and technology platform powering the online format. 

A Top 10 degree, delivered online. 

Our online format delivers an immersive experience and a unique combination of academic rigor and real-world experiential learning. It offers the same high-caliber curriculum, top-notch faculty, peer-to-peer interaction, and outstanding employment recruitment opportunities as the on-campus format and shares the same admission standards, which seek motivated, high-performing students best suited to succeed in a competitive environment.

An innovative delivery.

While the format may be different, the curriculum isn't. Online students take the same curriculum as their on-campus counterparts, but do so through a sophisticated online interface. Live, interactive sessions are held via webcam, lectures are delivered through a powerful media player, and communications take place via integrated messaging systems.

Already have an MBA? Add the MAC faster.

A MAC degree is a powerful accompaniment to the MBA, providing you with deep accounting knowledge and critical financial skills that companies are looking for. In addition, if you start the online format having already earned an MBA from an AACSB-accredited institution, you may qualify for a shorter curriculum (37 credits for qualified online students who start the program in January or March 2018, 40 credits for those who start in June).

Accounting AND non-accounting majors welcomed.

Unlike its on-campus counterpart, the online format is open to all students, including those who took accounting courses in their undergraduate studies. Students who enter the online format with an accounting-heavy background will receive a personalized curriculum that incorporates additional business coursework and/or waivers for courses they have already completed. In these situations, the total credit hours taken may be less than the program's standard curriculum requirements.

Be flexible. 

You have a full-time job. Or kids in daycare. Or both. That’s no problem; our online format was built for you. With night courses, a calendar that you set, and a powerful online interface to organize your studies, this format allows you to balance your studies with the rest of your life. On the other hand, you can also expedite your coursework to push through faster. Complete the program in as little as 12 months or stretch it out for up to 36 months; it’s your choice. In addition, start the program when it's best for you; starting in 2018, you can begin your path to the MAC in January, March, June, or September.
