The MBA in Accounting is a specialization in Wilmington University's MBA program. The program is designed for credentialed accountants, financial managers, and addresses the new Certified Public Account (CPA) licensure requirements in the State of Delaware.
Although the MBA in Accounting provides the foundation for management accounting and reporting success, Wilmington University recognizes that not all accounting students aim for CPA licensure. If the MBA in Accounting is not a good fit, explore the M.S. in Accounting or one of our other traditional or online MBA programs.
In addition to the MBA admission and candidacy requirements, the MBA Accounting concentration has the prerequisite completion of undergraduate Intermediate Accounting I and II with grades of “C” or better. The Wilmington University equivalent of these courses is BAC 201 and 202.
To fulfill the requirements for the MBA with a concentration in Accounting, students must complete an 18-credit hour Business Management core and an 18-credit hour concentration in Accounting.
