VERMILLION, S.D. -- When it comes to an affordable online AACSB-accredited master’s degree in professional accounting, it’s tough to beat the University of South Dakota. GetEducated.com, a consumer watchdog group that reviews and ranks online universities for cost, quality and credibility, ranked USD’s online MPA second on its 2012 “Best Affordable Online Masters in Accounting” lists.
Not only is USD’s degree a Best Buy but the online MPA also gets an “A” for student satisfaction and public perception as noted at GetEducated.com (http://www.geteducated.com/profiles/show/online-degrees/university-of-south-dakota/beacom-school-of-business-graduate/128/6180/). The rankings were calculated by objectively comparing course tuition and online learning fees at 13 online AACSB-accredited business schools in the U.S. that offer 14 different online masters accounting degrees. USD, the only AACSB-accredited business school in South Dakota, and Florida Atlantic University, who ranks first on the “Best Affordable” list, are the only two online MPA programs to receive overall “A” grades from GetEducated.com.
The online MPA joins the Beacom School of Business’ popular MBA as an online offering that’s not just convenient but highly affordable. All MPA courses are taught by the same credentialed faculty and include the same high quality subject matter regardless of delivery mode, whether online or on campus.
