If you hold your CA, CMA, CGA or CPA designation, you may be able to finish your AU online MBA for executives up to six months faster.

The AU online MBA for executives for Accountants acknowledges the advanced financial education and experience attained by professionally designated accountants. If you are accepted, you could receive transfer credit (and associated tuition reduction) for two core courses and one online elective course.

Professionally designated accountants who already hold an undergraduate in business can complete the program in even less time. See Accelerated MBA for Accountants»

Transfer Credit & Time Reduction

If you are accepted into the online MBA program with your professional accounting designation, you receive direct transfer of nine (9) credits based on previous coursework and experience, for:

  • Phase one core: Financial and Managerial Accounting (FMAC 503)*
  • Phase two core: Corporate Finance (CFIN 601)
  • One (1) three credit elective

which allows you to finish your program up to six months faster. View the full MBA program curriculum»
