Two leading education research websites have honored an online master’s degree program in Gardner-Webb University’s Godbold School of Business. The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) was named in three separate rankings.

“These national awards recognize the commitment of our faculty to provide a superior education for students in our online master’s degree programs,” observed Mischia Taylor, dean of the Godbold School of Business. “Our smaller class sizes offer a personal approach, and we emphasize experiential learning through internships, service opportunities, projects, course simulations, and interaction with business leaders.”

The Gardner-Webb MAcc program was selected for the 2019 Best Online Colleges list and the 2019 Most Affordable Online Colleges rankings, both published by the SR Education Group. Programs named to these lists are analyzed using average mid-career salary data from PayScale, and manually researching annual tuition rates to determine the online programs that offer the best value to students. Inclusion in the rankings shows high return on investment and commitment to affordability, two key factors for prospective students.

The Master of Accountancy program was also recognized by as one of the Best Programs for 2019 and received an additional honor as the “Best For Real-World Experience.” Programs named to this list offer courses that cover the latest developments in critical topics including financial reporting, data analytics, and taxation. Such training ensures that degree holders not only thrive in the evolving world of business, but it also gives students the opportunity to innovate and develop new methods for driving financial success and managing financial data.
