Accounting & Advisory Services Concentration

MBA concentrations have been replaced by graduate certificates beginning in the Fall 2017 semester.  Students who matriculate into their MBA program starting in the Fall 2017 semester and are interested in specializing should review the graduate certificates available and reach out to their assigned academic advisor with any questions.

Students who matriculated prior to the Fall 2017 semester may complete either a graduate certificate or concentration by completing coursework as outlined by the academic department.


Accounting is the management of financial information to provide organizations with the vital financial information they need to function, compete, and succeed. The Accounting & Advisory Services concentration educates students how to access and analyze financial information and present it to clients in a meaningful and useful format, answering questions such as: “How profitable is this business? How solvent? How risky?” This concentration prepares students to function and prosper in the in-demand field of accounting advisory services.

Things to consider:

  • Students must be able to attend classes on-campus to complete the Accounting & Advisory Services concentration.
  • Elective courses are scheduled based on faculty availability and student demand and are not guaranteed to be offered every semester or every academic year.
  • Special Topics courses (typically numbered 6290) are experimental offerings that, depending on demand, may or may not become permanent offerings.
  • Students who wish to satisfy a MBA concentration elective with a course that is not listed below must submit a Petition for Elective Credit form requesting permission to apply the course to the concentration elective requirements.
