Accounting Cohort Applicants

The one-year MBA Accounting Cohort Program is designed for students with a background in accounting to complete an MBA degree in 13-14 months full-time; summer to summer. The program is designed to prepare students for the CPA and is focused on providing skills for accounting majors to be successful in future positions in management. Students in this program will take courses, together, in a cohort model. MBA courses will be designed to address the specific skills needed for accountants to be successful in the business community.

MBA Cohort Experience:  Students in this program will complete 12 graduate business courses; 8 core courses and 4 elective courses in 13-14 months as part of a cohorted group of students. The curriculum is designed to be taken as a group, where core classes are designed to encourage team-based learning. Students in this program take all of their core courses, and most of their electives together. The program begins with a summer internship, designed to help students use their work experience for class discussion with an internship experience, and then interweaves both core business courses and accounting electives throughout the program. Students will also engage in an interactive business project or case competition as part of the program.

This program is only available to full-time students who are currently an accounting major or have completed a business degree in accounting. All applications must be complete at the time of deadline. The MBA Accounting Cohort Program admits students only one-time per year. Please check your application status online. The MBA program office will review all applications after the deadlines listed. Please note that there are limited spaces available and we will only accept applications for the other MBA programs (4 + 1, FT, and PT) when spaces are filled. Students who are not admitted to the accounting cohort program may reapply to one of the other programs. Please note that accounting electives are for students in the accounting cohort or part-time accounting programs only.
