Stetson University’s long and rich tradition began more than 100 years ago in 1883 as Florida’s first private university. Prided as a nationally recognized leader in education with a commitment to values and social responsibility, Stetson is committed to making top-quality, private education affordable to a diverse group of qualified students. This is evident as Stetson University always fares well in national college guides. Stetson is consistently ranked among the top regional universities by U.S. News & World Report, which also names Stetson as one of the best in the “Great Schools, Great Prices” category.
Stetson’s academic disciplines are unified by a profound commitment to interdisciplinary programs, teaching values and social responsibility and the pursuit of intellectual excellence. The university’s outstanding faculty is at the heart of the academic enterprise. The teaching-learning process focuses on the whole person in order to sustain deep engagement among students and faculty and promote active forms of social justice-based community engagement.
Stetson University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The School of Business Administration and the Accounting Program are both fully accredited at the undergraduate and graduate levels by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Stetson University is one of a handful of elite business schools that has both business and accounting programs accredited by AACSB International.
Master of Accountancy
Stetson University’s Master of Accountancy (MAcc) online program is specifically designed to ensure that students and busy professionals meet the academic requirements for the CPA Examination and continue on to successful, fulfilling accounting careers. The Stetson University MAcc provides professional accountants with the necessary range of knowledge and practical skills.
The program consists of ten courses that provide the additional 30 hours required for licensing in many states. The MAcc is intended to complement a student’s undergraduate foundation courses and CPA review preparation. Many states allow students to take parts of the CPA exam after they receive their bachelor’s degree but before they complete the required 150 hours. The courses in our program make up the remaining 30 hours and are positioned to supplement and enhance study for each individual part of the CPA exam.
