Master of Accountancy in Governmental Accounting #5 in U.S. by Online Masters

Online Masters recently ranked Rutgers Business School’s Master of Accountancy in Governmental Accounting #5 in the U.S. and Best for Government Employees. 

The #5 ranked Master of Accountancy in Governmental Accounting 30-credit program is offered entirely online at the same cost for out-of-state students as for in-state students.  The program flexibility enables students to complete the program part-time while working, or in as little as a year while fulfilling the additional credits required to sit for the New Jersey CPA exam.  

Irfan Bora, assistant professor of professional practice and director of Master of Accountancy in Governmental Accounting said, “We are gratified that the governmental accounting program has received this recognition. The only program of its kind in the nation and due to its unique online nature, we continue to attract students who aspire towards careers in public financial management and those who would like to enhance their skills in this area.”

A four-course online graduate certificate program is also available; the credits can be applied toward the master degree.

Online Masters’ methodology considers academic quality (40%), student success (40%), and affordability (20%).  They committed 90 hours of research examining every online master in accounting program in the U.S. and consulted 35 industry experts, hiring managers, current students, and alumni to rank the top 50 programs.
