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.

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 may be less than the program's standard 45-hour format. 


No relocation required.

In our online format, you can earn a MAC degree from a top-ranked program without relocating. You’ll gain the convenience and flexibility that comes with online learning while building a network of peers with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

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 15 months or stretch it out for up to 36 months; it’s your choice.
