Master of Accountancy

The Master of Accountancy program offers students a unique educational opportunity. In addition to earning the Master of Accountancy degree, graduates will have met the educational requirements for the Certified Financial Planner exam, the Certified Public Accountant exam and the Personal Financial Specialist exam. This combination of academic and professional credentials will serve a population of students who aspire to stand out among their peers, who favor a differentiated educational experience and who wish to significantly increase academic and professional expertise.

Master of Business Administration

Our Master of Business Administration offers a curriculum that is on trend with what the market needs. Specialized elective focus areas, a self-paced course load, and the option to take classes in Raleigh, Buies Creek, or online make this program one of the most flexible MBA programs in the state. In addition, our 4+1 MBA Program offers an incredible opportunity for current Campbell University main campus undergraduate students to pursue an undergraduate and graduate degree simultaneously, saving one year of time and tuition.

Master of Trust and Wealth Management

Our Master of Trust and Wealth Management program is one of just a few in the country and offers incredible placement opportunities within the financial services industry. Students gain expertise in the areas of estate and trust administration, personal financial planning, portfolio management, tax planning, and insurance.

“Campbell taught me how to interact and network with my peers, as well as business professionals in the community. As a student, I was connected with a mentor in the business community, and during graduate school, I was able to be a mentor to younger college students.

I was fortunate to complete three internships while I was a student at Campbell. These opportunities helped prepare me to jumpstart my career by providing real-world experience as well as a full-time employment offer months before graduation. My time at Campbell was invaluable and I am so grateful for the opportunities that were given to me while I was a student.”
