Online Master of Accounting Programs in Kansas

University of Kansas – Master of Accountancy

The School of Business does not offer a full online program for the Master of Accountancy, but there are select courses available to create a hybrid model of the program. 30 credit hours are needed for experienced students in accounting and could be completed in less than one year. The 10-week course format in the spring allows for a CPA examination review for students that are ready to continue the state licensure process.

Students have the opportunity to specialize in Assurance Auditing, Consulting Services, Corporate, and Tax. For example, a student that is looking to have a career that has more of a focus on state and local taxation laws and estate and trust planning would consider pursuing the Tax concentration. Regardless of choice, the same amount of credits will be needed.

For those that do not have foundational experience in accounting will need to complete more courses to finish the program. In this case, the program will require up to two years to gain the degree, and even further for part-time students maintaining a full-time job. Common courses among the concentrations include Advanced Taxation, Accounting Theory, and Accounting Analytics.

Admission requirements include holding a Bachelor’s degree in the accounting field or similar. Potential students will be evaluated on their GPA, letters of recommendation, prior volunteer or internship work, and other activities or professional work experience they have.
