Work While Earning Your MBA in Accounting – Online

onlineaccountingdegree.JPGWhile many working accountants see significant value in acquiring a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) degree, it can be difficult to complete the necessary coursework while still holding down a full-time job. In years past, night school was an option, but inconvenient locations, schedules and commuting times — not to mention time away from the family — often made this impractical.

Today, online college programs make getting an MBA in accounting a viable option. For example, Everest University Online, a division of Everest University, now offers an MBA in Accounting program that can be completed in as little as 21 months. Working accountants participating in the program can attend online lectures, take exams, communicate with faculty and even form virtual study groups at the times and frequency of their choosing, including evenings and weekends.

Acquiring an MBA degree in Accounting from Everest University Online can be a factor in earning professional leadership positions, winning salary increases or preparing to become Certified Public Accountants (CPAs).
