WWU Offers MBA, MBA/Accounting in Columbia

William Woods University is offering a master of business administration (MBA) degree and an MBA with an accounting emphasis for Columbia area residents this fall.


The programs will begin with an orientation at 10 a.m. Aug. 23 at the WWU campus in Columbia, 3100 Falling Leaf Court.


Prospective students are encouraged to contact the university’s Graduate & Adult Studies program prior to then, but walk-ins will be accepted. Call 1-800-995-3199 or contact WWU by e-mail at AdultEd@WilliamWoods.edu.


The MBA with accounting emphasis was created in response to accounting industry educational requirements adopted to better prepare accountants to deal with the many facets of their jobs. In Missouri, anyone registering for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam is required to have 150 hours of education and a baccalaureate degree.


The MBA Accounting degree at William Woods is a 36-hour program designed to equip accounting professionals with a broad array of skills and knowledge for professional practice. The program provides a well-rounded preparation for business professionals who wish to sit for the CPA examination.


According to Sherry McCarthy, vice president and academic dean, a combination of a CPA with an MBA is an increasingly more popular and marketable combination.


Prospective students targeted for this program are those who have an undergraduate accounting degree or heavy emphasis in accounting and want to pursue an MBA in an accelerated evening format. Admission requirements also include a minimum of two years full-time work experience.


“The emphasis in accounting fits beautifully into our existing MBA program,” David Forster, associate professor of business and economics, said. “It’s a perfect fit for our program, which is practitioner based, accelerated and convenient, appealing to people who want to continue working while pursuing an advanced degree.”


William Woods University has been offering Graduate & Adult Studies programs to meet the educational needs of the full-time working adult since 1992. Programs are offered across the state for the convenience of interested students.


The MBA program is an 80-week, 36-credit-hour program designed to further prepare the working professional for a career in general management. Classroom activities are designed to provide the proper blend of theory and practice, making for a true applications-oriented program.


Forster said the MBA with accounting emphasis is unique to mid-Missouri. William Woods also offers a regular MBA, as well as MBAs with concentrations in agribusiness, human resources and health management.


William Woods can tailor any of its programs for a particular business or community. More information is available on the William Woods website at TheWoods.edu/evening.
