We offer courses to prepare students to take the professional examinations that are required to become Certified Public Accountants (CPA) and Certified Management Accountants (CMA).
Fresh Start Track is an MBA for students with no work experience and little academic background in accounting. MUM prepares you for success as a professional accountant in 11 months to 18 months (depending on your academic background and professional work experience). There is no curricular practical training in this track.
Strong Background Track requires at least 4 accounting courses. No work experience is necessary. The length of the program varies (11 to 18 months) based on previous academic background. There is no curricular practical training in this track. It is well-suited for people who possess a strong academic background in accounting and business, and who want to earn their MBA degree quickly.
Accounting Professionals Track is a separate MBA program for accounting professionals that requires two or more years of recent full-time work experience in accounting or a related field, and a strong financial accounting academic background (three or more courses). This track requires a preliminary assessment to determine eligibility.
