        “It is a great honor, and a testament to the quality and dedication of our talented faculty to be consistently recognized as one of the top programs in the country."”

        Flexibility. Practicality. Quality. That’s why Harbert College’s School of Accountancy online graduate programs continue to stand among the nation’s elite.

        The U.S. News & World Report ranked the college’s non-MBA programs – including the Master of Accountancy -- 12th nationally, in its annual “Best Online Programs” report issued January 14. “It is a great honor, and a testament to the quality and dedication of our talented faculty to be consistently recognized as one of the top programs in the country,” said Duane Brandon, Director of the School.

        Harbert Accounting ranked among best in the nationU.S. News & World Report determined the rankings by exploring a number of dimensions. The ranking is a combination of three online graduate programs – Accounting, MS Information Systems, and MS Finance.

        “The online Master of Accountancy program at Harbert is perfectly designed for the working professional,” Andee Hodo, Director of Graduate and Online Programs, explained. “Most of our students work full time and they have families,” she said. “They don’t have to quit their jobs and move to campus to earn a graduate degree. Flexibility is key for the online program.

        “One key differentiator for us is the way we deliver our content,” she said. “Our live classes are recorded, so it’s the closest thing to being in the classroom without being physically present. You are getting the same PhD faculty and content as our campus classes. Therefore, it is the exact degree as the campus students. At Auburn, you know that you are getting the same rigor, same instruction, same requirements, same exams and same projects. We are not new to the game and we know what works.”

        The Auburn MAcc program is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).
