B.S. in Accounting/M.B.A

The dual B.S. in Accounting / M.B.A. degree program affords students the opportunity to earn both degrees in five years as opposed to the six years it would take to pursue the degrees separately. The BS/MBA Program enables a student to fulfill the Maine Board of Accountancy requirement of 150 semester hours of college education for individuals who wish to be licensed to practice as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). High-level courses in management complement intensive professional training in accounting to prepare graduates for leadership in the field.  Students in this dual degree program achieve the program objectives for both the B.S. Accounting and MBA degrees.
