No prior experience necessary

MUM’s MBA in Accounting program is for students who want to deepen their knowledge of accounting and audit practices used in multi-national companies and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Our flexible Rapid Graduation program will work with you to help you graduate as quickly as possible, regardless of your level of experience.

Develop Accounting Skills

Our courses allow students to develop moderate and advanced skills in a variety of areas vital to accounting, including using Excel spreadsheets and US accounting payroll systems. Our students also get hands-on experience with SAP Finance, data analysis, and data mining.

Many of our graduates become fully-licensed Certified Public Accountants (CPA) or Certified Management Accountants (CMA) and are qualified for high-paying accounting jobs immediately upon graduation.

No Prior Experience Required

Anyone with a 4-year BA degree in any subject can join this program that builds competencies for a promising career.

Candidates who join this path could be described as:

  • Students with little or no prior background in accounting
  • Students with some academic background or work experience in accounting

Students with strong academic background may be able to waive basic courses.

Graduate in 11-15 Months

Our Rapid Graduation Path is appropriate for students who seek to complete degree requirements quickly, i.e., within 11-15 months of continuous study. Program length varies based on previous academic background.

Curricular Practical Training is not available, but International students may apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT) that would allow them to seek an internship for up to one year after graduation.
