The certificate of post-MPAC studies is designed to allow graduates of master of accounting programs accredited by AACSB to develop expertise in a specified area of concentration beyond the MPAC.
The curriculum consists of a custom-designed selection of six graduate courses plus prerequisites. After a review of the student’s background and interests, the MPAC director will work out a program of studies with the student. Certificates are awarded in the following areas of specialization: business valuation, economics, e-commerce and information systems, entrepreneurship, finance, international business, management, and marketing. Credits earned for the certificate may be applied to other graduate degree programs in the school of business.
Upon successful completion of program requirements, students will have posted to their transcripts the following entry: Certificate of Post-MPAC Studies in (insert discipline) and will be issued a certificate listing the discipline studied.
The program is open to graduates of master of accounting programs accredited by AACSB. Application requires submission of completed application, current résumé, and graduate transcripts. Seattle University MPAC graduates usually will be considered automatically eligible for the program. For non-Seattle University graduates, academic performance and work experience must meet or exceed the standard for entry to the master of professional accounting program.
