EUGENE, Ore., June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published a ranking of the 35 Best Online Master's in Accounting Degrees.
Even with the inevitable shifts in the economy, it seems certain that the need for accountants isn't going away anytime soon. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects an 11% rate of job growth between 2014 and 2024 – faster than average for any other occupation.
"Pursuing a master's in accounting ensures that you will gain the necessary range of knowledge and practical skills you need – and opens doors to a wide range of career options, both nationally and internationally," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. "But if leaving work for a traditional, on-campus program isn't feasible for you, there are many high-quality, accredited online programs that employers will take seriously. For that reason, we put together this list."
College Choice developed its list by looking at academic quality, institutional reputation, program accreditation, along with return on investment—the differential between tuition costs and average early career earnings.
The ranking for the 35 Best Online Master's in Accounting Degrees finds University of Massachusetts Amherst in the top spot. University of North Carolina is in second, and Auburn University rounds out the top three.
