Graduate Programs in the College of Business

A personalized program can make all the difference in your success as an MBA student. A key benefit of Butler's MBA is flexibility. Classes are held in the evenings and some are offered on Saturdays.

The program is set up in a way that allows you to proceed at the pace that's best for you. Prerequisites have been condensed and can now be completed in as little as one semester. And unlike many other programs, you can choose when during the program to take particular courses, allowing maximum discretion in balancing work, life and graduate school. Your MBA program can be completed in as little as two years, depending on the pace you choose.

The Butler MBA is accredited by AACSB International, which is the gold standard for business school education.  It is the highest level of business school accreditation and less than 5% of institutions worldwide have earned this distinguishing hallmark of excellence in education.

Butler MPAcc

The Master of Professional Accounting (MPAcc) program is designed for students who hold an undergraduate degree in accounting and are seeking a career in public accounting.

By combining the MPAcc degree with an undergraduate accounting degree, students can meet the CPA certification requirement of 150 hours of post-secondary education, which is mandated by most states.

Many students add the fifth year of study to their undergraduate program and leave ready for the CPA, armed with a graduate degree.

Graduates will earn the Master of Professional Accounting after completing 30 graduate credit hours.

The MPAcc offers late afternoon and evening classes and can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. Students are admitted in the fall and spring.
