One nationally recognized college. Two online business degrees. It all adds up to a powerful boost for your career and earning potential in accounting.

You can get these rewards via Excelsior College's Bachelor of Science in Business (Accounting) / MBA Dual Degree Track.

A national distance learning leader since 1971, Excelsior offers an online counterpart to an accounting BS / MBA degree—one designed to help working adults earn a dual business degree without sacrificing job, family, and community commitments.

You can complete Excelsior's online program more quickly and conveniently than a traditional BS / MBA accounting degree, while reaping the same benefits for your marketability and earning power.

A Short, Convenient Route to a BS / MBA Degree

Excelsior removes obstacles that can keep working adults from completing a dual BS/MBA degree. We do it by:

  • Granting academic credit for previous college courses and for many types of job training, military experience, certificate programs, and other forms of nonclassroom education. You may already have most of the credits you need for an accounting degree.
  • Offering online accounting classes that you complete on your own schedule, at your own convenience.
  • Providing access to cost-saving financial aid, flexible payment options, and other forms of assistance. Here's a detailed look at Excelsior's tuition and fee structure.
  • Supporting you academically with an award-winning advising team.
