Designed for current Goizueta BBA students, opportunity awaits when you combine the Master of Professional Accounting (MPA) with any Goizueta BBA undergraduate depth. Whether as a corporate executive, public accountant, consultant, entrepreneur, investment banker, or more, join the ranks of leaders across the globe with savvy accounting expertise! With a 99% employment rate, supercharge your career with Goizueta’s best-in-class MPA.

The Master of Professional Accounting (MPA) is awarded as a joint degree with Goizueta’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. Students can begin graduate coursework in a wide range of areas requiring accounting expertise, all while completing their undergraduate degree.

Though educational models vary by state, nearly all states require the completion of 150 semester hours of post-secondary education and a baccalaureate degree from an accredited College or university prior to sitting for the CPA examination. Earning the necessary semester hours will likely require a fifth year of formal post-secondary education. The BBA/MPA program is designed to address this need through master’s level coursework and an internship. This is a joint degree program, and graduates are awarded both degrees at the same time upon completion of all requirements.
