USD Beacom School of Business Online Graduate Accounting Named Among Top Programs
“The University of South Dakota’s program caters to students who want to become CPA’s, and experienced faculty members can help you determine what the requirements are in your state," wrote Masters-In-Accounting.org, which noted the low cost of tuition as a factor for the ranking. Accounting-degree.org cited the basis for its ranking as “accreditation, cost, and available information regarding prestige and student satisfaction.”
Venky Venkatachalam, dean of the Beacom School of Business, said USD's online graduate accounting program consistently receives high marks, including a recent ranking that listed it first in the nation for its exceptionally high certified public accountant pass rate. "These rankings reflect excellence in and dedication for high-quality teaching by our accounting faculty as well as the quality of our students who get hired by top firms in the nation," he said.
Employers actively recruit USD graduates, including the four largest accounting firms. The Master of Professional Accountancy program prepares students to sit for the CPA exam in most jurisdictions and can be completed in two calendar years, depending on the individual student’s undergraduate coursework.
