Now that I am nearing the end of this dissappoining journey I will caution certified accounting or finance professional to steer clear of Walden—the university lacks the resources (databases, professionally certfied facilitators, etc.) to support a DBA in finance or the MS in Accounting. While most institutions offering such degress understand that the primary financial data intermediaries such as Compustat (Research Insight) or minimally Mergent, are essential to proper research and practice, Walden simply does not subscribe to any relevant resources for actual professionals. My research is on discretionary accruals and the cost of data collection has fallen 100% on my shoulders. The advice given was that I should water down my approach to a qualitative study—RIGHT! The university also does not have a robust staff of scholar practitioners with CPA, CMA, CFA, or CIA credentials. Perhaps in time they will choose to build a "real" program for busy professionals but it is not there yet.
