The program forces you to engage in real world projects that you can later replicate. There are a lot of evening classes, but there could be more.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

I thought the program was in tune with industry needs. As I was leaving, there was an excel class that was to be offered, that is to become a part of the program which I think will be beneficial. $4,000 per class to me is a very steep price, which equates to almost $1,000 per credit. There has to be affordability issues as this seems extremely high. The program didn't seem to focus much on the "forensic" aspect of accounting, which this program was touted online.

The graduate program is a tough one especially in accounting. Taking into consideration that there is not much variation from one accounting course to the other this is a pretty straight forward program. The good part about the program is that the school has a CPA advisor on staff to guide you through the required courses and what else needs to be done in order to complete your CPA licensure which is the main reason many students graduate with a degree in accounting. The cons as always in every school that there needs to be more time dedicated on explaining the courses themselves as those are what really helps a student succeed.

Faculty is excellent, experienced, and easily accessible. University student service offices are efficient. Parking can be an issue depending on preferred location and time of day.

I am just starting my program now, and so far I am decently impressed. I do wish the student got more attention and help, however, from staff.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program offers an opportunity to learn more about medicine and have the potential experience of medical school in order to see if that is the route you should be taking. However, there are not enough financial aid opportunities, which is why I am seeking out as many scholarships as possible.

My experience with Florida Atlantic University's Master of Accounting Executive Program in Forensic Accounting has been very valuable to my career development. The way the program is structured offers career professionals the option to attend courses on campus and/or online. Due my work schedule, I have benefitted greatly by attending classes through the online option. Attending classes online allows me to view recorded lectures on my own time, which I feel is one of the best pros to the program. Another pro of the program is learning and collaborating with a very diverse and intelligent group of individuals. My peers have held very successful positions from in the field of accounting in a private setting. to working for the federal government. This diverse group of people has really made the program rich in nature. Even though I find the program wonderful in many aspects, the price tag is the one thing I would say is its only con. Each course is $3500.00 and with there being 10 courses for the program it comes to $35,000.00 in total to complete the program. I am very thankful to receive financial aid student loans to cover the expense for the program, however I would be exceptionally grateful to receive aid in the fashion of grants or scholarship to cover the student loan debt I have incurred while obtaining my Master of Accounting in Forensic Accounting degree.
