Accountancy Master's Testimonials
I was attracted to UND’s online Master of Accountancy program mainly due to its flexibility (online format), its cost relative to other schools, and the fact that it is AACSB accredited. Those three things were what I really focused on when looking for schools
- Dexter K., Online Master of Accountancy Alumni
There are many factors that encouraged me to choose UND. Convenience, because as a mother of a newborn, an online part-time program allows me to work and eat from my home and with the time I have. Also flexibility, because even though there are weekly deadlines, these are still flexible. You can decide when you want to do it during the week. Prestige, of course, as I learn more about the University of North Dakota during my process of selecting a school, I learned about its prestige in the accounting world… Also, that your CPA pass rate is high.
