FLINT TWP. — Beginning with the fall semester, students at Davenport University will be able to earn a Master’s of Accountancy (MAcc) degree, according to a press release.
This new degree program is one of only a handful across the country to offer graduate-level concentrations in fraud investigation, managerial accounting and internal auditing. Students entering the program may choose from multiple tracks that culminate in preparation courses for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Management Accountant (CMA), Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) or Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) exams, or that focus more broadly on a general accountancy or finance emphasis. If a student already possesses one of these certifications, they can earn credit and have a shorter time to completion.
“The Master of Accountancy will give our students the edge and concentrated focus they need for a successful career in accounting,” said Irene Bembenista, Interim Dean for the Donald W. Maine College of Business and the College of Technology. “With the growth of the accounting profession, students who pass the CPA exam and hold a Master of Accountancy will have a better chance at job placement than those who do not.”
Applications are currently being accepted for classes beginning fall 2015. For more information, call 800-686- 1600 or visit www.davenport.edu.
Founded in 1866, Davenport is a private, non-profit university serving nearly 9,000 students online and at campuses across Michigan including the Flint Township site at 4318 Miller Road. — R.S.
