What's the Difference Between Management Accounting and Financial Accounting?
Management accountants get involved in the details of business transactions throughout an organization. They look for areas that can be streamlined to improve efficiency and profitability. Financial accountants, on the other hand, focus primarily on overall company profitability and must report accurate and reliable financial statements to internal and external audiences.
If you have a bachelor’s degree in accounting or have taken the necessary prerequisites, MACU's MBA with a Management Accounting Emphasis qualifies you to sit for the CPA exam.
Why MACU is Your Choice for an Accounting Master of Business Administration
MACU’s Master of Business Administration program was voted a top Oklahoma MBA program in 2017 and a finalist in 2019 by The Journal Record’s Reader Rankings. It’s tailored to fit the needs of our students who may be juggling busy schedules. Available 100 percent online, this management accounting-focused master’s program may also include on-campus class options for those who are interested.
To ensure students know what to expect from course to course, each of our six-week classes in the MBA accounting program uses a similar template. Every instructor understands the value of thorough teaching rather than fleeting memorization, and they teach theory with an emphasis on its application in real-life situations, as well as through tools like government and audit software. By pursuing an emphasis in management accounting, your resume will stand apart when it comes time to apply for positions post-graduation which may require a broader skill set in business and accounting.
