  • Description:
  • The Texas MPA is a top-ranked graduate accounting program that will give you a broad business foundation, in-depth accounting knowledge and hands-on experience. The Texas MPA has a 60-year history of preparing students for careers in just about any business setting, including

    Public Accounting
    Investment Banking and other Financial Services
    Public service, including government and nonprofit

    As a Texas MPA, you’ll join motivated, ambitious classmates, learn from outstanding professors and interact with professionals in the field. Your academic advisors and career consultants will be with you every step of the way as you plan your coursework and set out on your job search.

    Tailor your MPA degree plan to fit your specific career goals by choosing one of four tracks:: financial reporting and assurance; tax; managerial accounting and control; and generalist.

    You and your academic advisor can also plan your coursework so that you will be eligible to sit for the CPA exam by the time you complete the Texas MPA program (depending on the state in which you intend to sit for your exam). And, most Texas MPAs accept a job offer before they graduate.

    There are three approaches to the Texas MPA:
    - Traditional MPA
