MBA for Accounting Professionals For internationals seeking US practical training internships

The MBA for Accounting Professionals program addresses the needs of international accounting professionals who want to deepen their knowledge of U.S. accounting and audit practices used in multi-national companies and international non-government organizations (NGOs).

Many of our graduates become fully-licensed Certified Public Accountants (CPA) or Certified Management Accountants (CMA).


How It Works

Students in this track start with an 8-month, full-time academic intensive on campus followed by up to 2 years of credit-bearing, full-time accounting internships with companies in the U.S.

Students engage in ongoing academic coursework to complete their degree requirements. International students can take advantage of training opportunities by means of authorized Curricular Practical Training (CPT).

The entire program is 2.5 years in length.



Our next entries are in August 2018 and February 2019.
Our students usually make between $45,000 and $70,000 per year.
In the past two years, 97% of our students have been placed in U.S. companies.
See our Cost & Aid page.
Eight months are spent on our campus and then up to two years are spent in Curricular Practical Training.
