    • Capstone course (3 sem. cr.)

Transfer of Credit: Students may be eligible to transfer up to 18 credits. Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Level I, II, or III certifications can be applied toward specialization courses.

Courses

The courses are delivered in a prescribed sequence. Each 16-week semester includes two consecutive 8-week courses.

Most states require individuals to complete 150 semester (225 quarter) hours in certain subject areas in order to be eligible to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam and/or obtain a CPA license. Walden’s accounting programs can help graduates progress toward meeting those requirements. The B.S. in Accounting offers 120 quarter (80 semester) credit hours that include upper-level courses in topics such as financial accounting, auditing, taxation, and management accounting. The M.S. in Accounting and the M.S. in Accounting and Management offer 30 semester (45 quarter) credit hours, while the M.B.A. Accounting specialization offers nine semester (13.5 quarter) credit hours. These programs include graduate courses in topics such as financial accounting, managerial accounting, and legal and ethical accounting practices. This will require students to complete additional coursework to meet state requirements.

In each state, there are specific policies that must be followed when an individual is seeking to become a licensed accountant. Some states will not allow individuals who complete the Walden accounting programs to sit for the CPA licensing exams due to state-specific issues such as professional accreditation or face-to-face instruction. For information on the educational requirements for your state, refer to the state’s Board of Accountancy or related agency.

Walden enrollment advisors can provide guidance about accountant licensure; however, it remains the responsibility of the individual enrolling in the program to read, understand, and comply with the licensure requirements in the state where he or she wishes to practice.

Walden University can make no representation, warranty, guarantee, or commitment that successful completion of a Walden program, or coursework for credit within a program, will make a graduate eligible to sit for a licensure exam or to obtain state licensure.

Celeste SteeleLOCATION: Maryland

SPECIALIZATION: Leadership

MY CAREER: Senior procurement analyst at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security

WHY I PURSUED MY MASTER’S DEGREE: I sought to advance within the federal government. It became clear to me that the experience, education, and insight of an M.B.A. would be essential to attain that goal.

WHAT I TOOK AWAY FROM THE PROGRAM: I was able to interact with top-notch students and scholars across the country. All of my instructors were excellent. All of the resources were available to me from my desktop computer. The Writing Center and other support services were excellent.

HOW I APPLY WHAT I’VE LEARNED TO MY CAREER: With an M.B.A., I now have the knowledge and skills to manage an entire organization, including finance management, acquisition, human capital, technology management, and marketing. I am able to contribute more to short- and long-term goals like IT solutions, budget drills, and outreach activities. I am always looking for innovative, value-added solutions that will save taxpayers money. Efficiency and cutting costs are what drive me.

BIGGEST BENEFITS OF EARNING MY DEGREE: My M.B.A. has given me much more confidence, and I see many more doors opening up for me. I now understand how the department operates as a whole, which makes me more successful in my career.

Michael HitchcockLOCATION: North Dakota

SPECIALIZATION: Leadership

CURRENT DEGREE PROGRAM: Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.)

MY CAREER: Organization Development Consultant at MasTec Network Solutions and author of Personal Happiness: A Business Strategy (Lulu.com, 2011)

WHY I CHOSE WALDEN: I wanted a program that would push me and help me grow into a better leader. I spent a lot of time comparing Walden’s consumer reviews to other schools’. I was repeatedly impressed by what current and former students had to say. Almost all of them stressed the positive impact Walden’s courses had on their professional lives—something I’ve found to be quite accurate.

THE COLLABORATION I’VE FOUND: Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of pursuing a degree with Walden is the collaboration with other students. The faculty is also highly skilled at encouraging an incredible amount of interaction, which stimulates critical thinking and the trading of new ideas. We not only learn from the instructor and the materials, but we also learn from each other.

HOW THE PROGRAM HELPED ME DEVELOP AS A LEADER: Many of the management and leadership theories and methods I’ve learned have played a big part in shaping my leadership style. I’ve become more flexible, adapting to the situation much more easily now that I have more “tools” to use.

WHY I CHOSE TO PURSUE MY DOCTORATE AFTER COMPLETING MY M.B.A.: The D.B.A. program feeds into my long-term objectives. I am learning new research methods and skills. You have to be on the leading edge of the research—and I plan to contribute to it.
