    A new DL Master's in Accountancy will soon be available from Georgia Southern University. This will be a fully online program with one brief residency at the outset of the program, thereafter pure DL. Cohort-based, classes taught by same professors as teach in the main on ground program, fully AACSB accredited. Will start either this coming fall or in 2012. Just a heads up for all you DL learners.

    Do you have a link to it? I'm unable to find it.

    Not yet, this is not yet formally finalized, but I heard of this very likely upcoming development through the grapevine, very reliable sources, put it out there to let people who might be interested know. From what I hear, they should have a very good faculty-directed program, not the semi-correspondence course format of Auburn's online MAcc.

    Georgia Southern's current MAcc focuses on forensic accounting, which I really like. Will the new DL program do the same?

    Is that how Auburn does their Accounting program, semi-correspondence? I think learning accounting by those means would be really tough. But lets face it, our core competency is winning National Championships not dealing with ridiculous topics like accounting. I wonder how UConn's program is structured? At any rate, the GSU program sounds promising (assuming it comes to fruiton). How many other MAcc programs are offered via distance by large state schools? I know there is Auburn, UConn and presumably GSU shortly. Any others?
