MBA - Accounting Emphasis

Course Description


The MBA with an Accounting Emphasis is designed for students desiring to continue their education in Accounting to prepare for careers in:

Public Accounting
Corporate or Small Business Accounting
Tax Preparation
Teaching at a Community College

While a bachelor’s degree in accounting is not a prerequisite, students need certain undergraduate hours in accounting before taking master-level accounting courses.

Courses for this degree option will be offered in a variety of formats: online, hybrid, and face to face. Classroom sessions will be scheduled on evenings and Saturdays. All Accounting courses will have a duration of the full semester.

CPA Information

The TWU School of Management attempts to ensure that all accounting and non-accounting business classes offered are accepted by the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy for CPA Exam credit. The combination of the TWU BBA/Accounting and TWU MBA/Accounting degrees is designed to provide all courses needed under current requirements. However, the State Board can and does make changes in course requirements / course acceptance as the Board deems appropriate. In addition, TWU may offer elective courses from time to time that do not meet any specific requirements set forth by the Board. Students are subject to all Board changes until the student receives an official letter from the State Board indicating that the student has fulfilled all requirements. Each individual interested in becoming qualified to sit for the CPA Exam must work with the State Board to determine her/his full eligibility for the CPA Exam.

A Degree Format that Works for You
Accounting courses in this program will be offered in the full-semester format either online or with scheduled sessions on the Denton campus. Other MBA courses may be offered online, at the Denton campus, or as part of the EMBA program.

While a student pursuing this program does not need to have completed an undergraduate degree in Accounting, it is expected that the following TWU courses (or their equivalent) will have been satisfactorily completed prior to enrollment in the graduate accounting courses required in this program: BUS 2043, BUS 2053, BUS 3023, BUS 3043, BUS 3063, BUS 4163, and BUS 4423.

Program of Study
Courses may be taken in any sequence, with the exception of BUS 5893 and BUS 5493. BUS 5893 is the capstone course in the program and enrollment should occur in the last semester of the program. Students will be required to integrate the knowledge and skills gained in all of the other required courses. A student may choose to enroll in electives in the same semester as BUS 5893, but this is not recommended. BUS 5493 is the Capstone course for the accounting coursework. As such, it should be taken as the final accounting course. At least four of the other required Accounting courses should be successfully completed before the start of BUS 5493.
