"Those seeking to obtain a practical Masters degree in Accounting be warned. Look elsewhere. I paused my participation halfway through the program once I realized how poor this program was. Designed entirely as a PhD program feeder but touted as a program designed for practical application. The instructors provide little to no guidance or feedback on assignments except for a select few. The majority of them are pure intellectuals and academics with very little in the ways of experience in the business world. As such, their guidance is very limited and does not provide practical application use outside of maybe and investment banker or broker career. An absolute waste of tuition. Aside from the core issues I have with the program, most of the instructors are technologically challenged which I find to be unacceptable for an instructor in the 21st century. Syllabus and course deliverables are seldom clear and the scheduling of class often switches outside if the posted and agreed upon schedule. If you want a program in which your just paying for a degree and spending hours on reading academic research paper, then this program may be for you. If you are looking for a program that teaches you appropriate and practical skills, you're money is best spent elsewhere."

"Accounting is a very competitive career. In a market that is flooded with numerous accounting opportunities and well paying jobs for the few excellent candidates, it is twice as difficult for new/entry level job seekers to find these career opportunities that may in future provide a comfortable and consistent standard of living. Therefore, a bachelors or a masters degree to a small extent will in some cases provide backup for the experience that employers are looking for. The support provided by companies and individuals that are willing to help students strive for prosperity by helping them pay for their tuition, is an added advantage since the cost of education is very high."

"It is a brand new program, and some logistics haven't been worked out yet. The pros are that it is an evening program and working adults are able to attend."
