Online MBA with Certificate in Accounting

Today's business environment is fast-changing and becoming increasingly complex. In response, employers are recognizing the need for a new type of business professional: one who is agile, with a diverse skillset, and able to make organizational decisions with a systems-thinking mindset.

Champlain College recognizes the challenges of today's enterprises, as well as the need for professionals to differentiate themselves with a more focused area of specialization. That's why our online MBA in accounting not only delivers the technical skills and business concepts expected of a traditional business degree program, but also provides a framework for business professionals to think more critically, work more collaboratively, and approach complex workplace challenges more holistically, with an emphasis on leveraging financial analysis to help decision-making at a strategic level.

If you are a business professional who values the interconnectedness of systems, processes, and people, and wants to gain a deeper understanding of the accounting field, or an accounting professional looking to expand your skillset, Champlain's online MBA with accounting concentration might be right for you!
