Master of Accounting


Tuition & Aid

Financing a master's degree might seem daunting, but our students quickly learn that a St. Ambrose education can be affordable (and worth every penny).

  • St. Ambrose graduates from undergraduate accounting programs who start the Master of Accounting program within 12 months of receiving their undergraduate degree receive a discount on all Master of Accounting graduate courses (up to 33 credit hours or the completion of 12 months, whichever occurs first).
  • A limited number of graduate assistantships and fellowships are available. Scholarships from the George J. Till Accounting Scholarship Fund for full-time Master of Accounting students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher are also available. Check with the program director for details.
  • In addition, the Financial Aid Office provides information on loans for graduate studies.
