Over the course of the year, the Accounting Association has several colleges with graduate programs visit and speak with Stonehill accounting majors about opportunities to pursue a graduate degree. On October 30th, Jackie Elcik, the Assistant Dean and Director of the MBA program at Providence College, spoke about the various opportunities to earn a graduate degree from their institution. Providence College’s MBA program has been accredited by AACSB International. It is among the top business schools in the country.
Jackie explained the courses that MBA students would have to take according to the time of attendance and start date. Their MBA program would give accounting students the 150 credits required for the CPA exam within one year of starting. There are nine core courses in the MBA program and six prerequisite courses. Stonehill and Providence College allow for waving most of the prerequisites. The program offers night classes, which enables students to work full time and earn a degree at the same time. The information session was very constructive for accounting students who are considering graduate school after Stonehill. We thank Providence College for taking the time and effort to come to campus and provide an insightful presentation for our students.
