    An MBA in 14 months, eligibility to sit for the CPA exam, and preparation to take advantage of leading opportunities in the world of business - these are the hallmarks of the MBA in Professional Accounting program. Specifically developed for undergraduates holding degrees in the arts and sciences or business degrees other than accounting, the program integrates management skills with accounting theory and practice, with a strong emphasis on teamwork, case studies, and final team projects. One measure of success is the large number of graduates that we place in career positions each year.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
