Master of Professional Accounting now a hybrid program

This fall, it will be more convenient than ever to earn a Master of Professional Accounting (M.P.Acc.) degree from Penn State Behrend when the program is restructured to feature 75 percent online instruction and 25 percent in-class learning, which can be completed at Penn State Behrend or at the Regional Learning Alliance in Cranberry Township, outside of Pittsburgh.

It’s a smart investment as all fifty states now require 150 credit hours of education for Certified Public Accountant licensure. Increasingly complex business methods, growing sophistication in auditing approaches, new tax laws, and a demand for highly technical services require an expanded knowledge base to become an effective accounting professional.

The one-year degree fulfills the educational requirements needed for CPA licensure in Pennsylvania within graduatelevel education.
