Grove City College
Grove City College’s new master’s degree in Accounting program is designed to give working professionals and career-minded students the knowledge and skills to expand their opportunities for success.
Through the online Master of Accounting (MAcc) program, students will develop the knowledge to sit for the CPA, CMA, and CFE exams while also strengthening their leadership, technical, and analytical skills.
“The master’s in Accounting program will help students position themselves for a strong career trajectory. Students will be solidly prepared for not only the CPA exam, but also for leadership positions, additional professional certifications, and higher levels of responsibility within the organizations they serve,” said Dr. Michelle McFeaters, dean of the School of Business and professor of Accounting.
The MAcc degree is offered as a stand-alone course of study for professionals or as a +1 program for current and future Grove City College undergraduates. The advanced degree affords graduates a wide variety of opportunities in public and private companies of all sizes as well as nonprofit organizations and government agencies, including senior and executive positions in accounting, auditing, financial analysis, consulting, and management. The new program is the latest offering from Grove City College’s growing Department of Graduate and Online Programs. The college’s graduate programs are designed for career-focused adult learners who want to improve their positions and undergraduates who want to jump start their early career with an advanced degree.
In addition to the MAcc degree, the College offers online Master of Business Administration and Master of Business Analytics degrees in addition to an innovative 3+1 program from the Department of Biblical and Religious Studies that allows some students to earn their B.A. and an M.A. in ministry in the time it usually takes to earn a four-year degree.
The degree programs are designed around Grove City College’s firm educational foundation and legacy of exceptional student outcomes. All Graduate Programs professors possess extensive academic and professional expertise, while more than 80 percent of full-time faculty hold terminal degrees in their field. The College’s Christ-centered approach integrates faith and learning, fostering a moral and ethical approach to the profession that values service along with success.
