MBA Professional Accountancy


The Berry MBA Professional Accountancy Track provides advanced accounting education to prepare for the CPA exam. Our program is designed for undergraduate accounting majors or students with significant work in accounting. In addition to providing eligibility to sit for the CPA exam, students who complete our program will be prepared to assume managerial roles in various organizations.

At just under $20,000, this program is one of the most affordable options in Georgia for an MBA degree accredited by AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).

The Berry MBA is 30 credit hours. Twenty-one of these hours focus on a set of required core courses in the critical areas of business including accounting, finance, marketing, leadership and change management, information systems, value-chain management, and business strategy. For the remaining nine hours, students will focus on advanced accounting coursework. Students can complete the part-time evening program in as few as five semesters or take up to six years if needed.

Berry’s MBA program is ideal for balancing work, family and studies. Classes meet weekdays 6–8:45 p.m., with every third week offering blended learning activities that can be completed off campus, allowing flexibility and convenience.  

Small classes are structured to build networks and promote lifelong connections through discussions, team projects, and interactions with peers and faculty. In-depth case analysis will sharpen your analytical, written and verbal communication skills. You will be able to take the knowledge learned in class and apply it to your work the very next day.  

MBA students have full access to Berry’s one-of-a-kind campus and community, including The Cage Athletic Center, Memorial Library, concerts, theatre productions, and more than 100 miles of trails for hiking and biking.
