OC to Offer Master of Accountancy Degree
Oklahoma Christian will offer a new Master of Accountancy Degree beginning this spring.
Elaine Kelly, chair of OC’s department of accounting and finance and a professor of accounting, said the decision was influenced by feedback from the accounting industry and alumni, plus recent growth in graduate enrollment and job opportunities.
“We noticed in our MBA program, which has several tracks, that accounting has been increasing,” Kelly said. “That is primarily because there have been more companies hiring graduates trained in accounting.”
The degree will further prepare students for the CPA exam and allow students to choose a career in either public or corporate accounting. Another advantage is OC’s emphasis on faith.
“Our program requires students to examine basic ethics in the conduct of business from a biblical perspective and how that affects the decision-making process,” Kelly said.
For enrollment information, contact OC’s Graduate School of Business at (405) 425-5567.
