Learn by doing

The integration of academic thinking with authentic, experience-powered learning is fast becoming the proven method for developing the skills needed to meet today's business world demands. No one has greater experience evolving and applying this approach than the D'Amore-McKim School of Business. It's an approach that allows students to expand their knowledge base beyond the classroom.

Our MS in Accounting/MBA students learn from faculty that have extensive industry backgrounds in their fields. Students are guided through project-based learning and surrounded by classmates with diverse and professional backgrounds, creating a powerful fusion of experience and skills.

“Our program is very focused on building the specific skills needed to both pass the CPA exam and succeed in public accounting. While much of this knowledge is developed in the classroom, the program has done a wonderful job of supplementing courses with experience-driven learning opportunities, such as workshops and networking events to make sure that we will be able to build skills on a personal and professional level.”
