Pfeiffer University has been ranked among the 10 most affordable online master's in forensic accounting by Grad School Hub. The ranking was published on the organization's website in July.
Pfeiffer University was ranked seventh.
This ranking was created using the National Center for Education Statistics' College Navigator database. From a list of accredited colleges and universities offering advanced degrees in forensic accounting, financial crime, and fraud examination available 100 percent by distance education, the top 10 most affordable schools were then ranked based on in-state graduate tuition/fees.
A private liberal arts university affiliated with the United Methodist Church, Pfeiffer's mission is to prepare servant leaders for lifelong learning. Established in 1885, its regional network of campuses includes a traditional undergraduate campus in Misenheimer, N.C., approximately 40 miles northeast of Charlotte, a Charlotte campus, a Raleigh-Durham campus, and online.
"Pfeiffer University has launched North Carolina's first master's degree program in financial fraud investigations through our division of business," says Dr. Colleen Keith, Pfeiffer University President. "We are excited to have our online Master of Science in Financial Fraud Investigations degree program recognized as one of the most affordable of its kind."
Led by Dr. Dawn Lucas, Pfeiffer's division of business reaffirmed its Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) accreditation in 2016 for five graduate degrees, including the online MSFFI. Going "Beyond Boundaries," the 30-credit distance degree builds on core courses like Corporate Governance on Blackboard with three concentrations: computer forensics/cybercrime, civil litigation, and law enforcement. Partnered with Bank of America and Wells Fargo for 20 percent employee discounts, the non-thesis program waives Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) scores for entrants with 5+ years of industry experience.
