Earning a Master’s in Accounting & Financial Management (MAFM)

Today's accountants and financial managers are taking on a variety of new roles, including evaluation of data integrity and compliance services, environmental accounting, forensic accounting, e-commerce and more.

Accounting information systems professionals ensure internal control of business activities and create new business opportunities. They serve as financial intermediaries between a company's accounting/financial needs and programming/systems analysts. Additionally, they guide management through the financial information database and facilitate the decision-making process.

Financial and cost management professionals analyze financial implications of business initiatives, understand and analyze complex business transactions, and use advanced accounting and tax knowledge to help businesses develop effective strategic plans.

Keller coursework, taught from the practitioner’s perspective, focuses on applying concepts and skills in areas including financial accounting and reporting, managerial accounting, external and operational auditing, and taxation.

Pursue a Professional Designation that Matches Your Interests
Designed to provide students with a solid foundation in the fundamentals of accounting and financial management, the Keller MAFM degree program allows you to choose between three professional designation emphases:

  • MAFM with a CPA Emphasis. By combining your master's degree with a CPA credential, you'll enhance your career potential in the fields of accounting and finance. Select Keller courses utilize the Becker CPA Review methodology (the most trusted and recommended CPA exam preparation review), which can save you time and money - and increase your chances of passing the CPA exam.
  • MAFM with a CFE Emphasis. If you're interested in one of today's most fascinating accounting careers, the Certified Fraud Examiner emphasis will provide a solid foundation in the concepts of auditing, fraud examination, forensic accounting, ethics and more. With your CFE credential, you'll enjoy an increasingly important role within corporations driven by changing government regulations, or even be qualified to explore opportunities in government or law enforcement agencies.
  • MAFM with a CFA Emphasis. Earning your CFA designation is becoming a valued credential to advance in the competitive financial arena in investment analysis, banking and portfolio management — and prominent studies show that many employers are willing to pay significantly higher salaries to professionals who hold a CFA credential. At Keller, the CFA emphasis integrates the Stalla exam preparation methodology.
