TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University has announced plans to launch its highly ranked Master of Accountancy and Data Analytics (MACC) in downtown Los Angeles at the ASU California Center for the fall 2022 semester.
The 10-month MACC in L.A. curriculum will be delivered on a flexible schedule designed for working professionals. Students will take virtual classes live two nights a week from 6 to 10 p.m. via ASU Sync, a technology-enhanced, and fully interactive remote learning modality that includes live lectures via Zoom technology. Additionally, a live, in-person orientation and program wrap-up event will take place at the ASU California Center, allowing students to engage with fellow students, faculty, and industry professionals.
The MACC in L.A. offers Southern California students an affordable and highly ranked master's degree, as well as one with an eye on the future of the discipline. "By enhancing our time-tested accountancy curriculum with a deep focus in data analytics, we're reflecting where firms are headed," said Amy Ostrom, interim dean of the W. P. Carey School of Business and the PetSmart Chair in Services Leadership.
"We constantly seek input from hiring companies and corporate partners to keep our programs market-relevant, and the application of data and analytics with accounting will make our graduates — and the companies they join upon graduation — more competitive in the future," Ostrom said.
The W. P. Carey School is currently ranked No. 12 in accounting by U.S. News & World Report, above the University of California, Berkeley, MIT, and Harvard. In 2021, 30 W. P. Carey programs and disciplines are ranked top 25 by U.S. News, the most for any business school in the nation. Meanwhile, ASU was recently ranked the No. 1 school in innovation in the country for the seventh year in a row, ahead of MIT, Stanford, and Cal Tech.
The ASU California Center is located in the historic Los Angeles Herald Examiner building, constructed by William Randolph Hearst and completed in 1914. ASU's new home in California includes classrooms, conference spaces, venues for community events, and more. In addition to the W. P. Carey School, more than 15 academic colleges and administrative units call the ASU California Center home, including the recently christened Sidney Poitier New American Film School.
Applications for the Master of Accountancy and Data Analytics in Los Angeles are currently being accepted for fall 2022. More information is available at wpcarey.asu.edu/macc-la.
