Evaluation Methodology Advisory (Adv Cert)

More firms are expanding their client accounting advisory services and are looking for ways to develop their staff with the skills they need to deliver high quality service to clients.  The Evaluation Methodology Advisory courses target these changing skills requirements by educating students in core competencies in fundamental client accounting service deliverables. The courses are designed to help students acquire a deep understanding of accounting information and how to intelligently use it in making investment, credit, and similar resource allocation decisions. Such knowledge is required of executives, consultants, bankers, analysts, investment managers, and other users of financial information. This program explicitly combines the accounting courses and technical skills training in multivariate data analysis, data programming, data mining, and database management.

Completion of the Advanced Certificate program requires fifteen credits. These are comprised of four required 3-credit courses plus a 3-credit elective. Any course that overlaps toward M.S. program requirements may also be applied to the M.S. program, contingent on the student’s appropriate admission and enrollment to that program.

The courses below may also be taken as a track for students in the M.S. in Professional Accounting program. If taken as a track, graduates of the M.S. in Professional Accounting that hold an F1-visa will become eligible for a STEM-OPT extension.
