Seattle University's Albers School of Business and Economics recently announced a new Business Valuation Specialization for Master of Professional Accounting and Master of Science in Finance students and a new Post Graduate Certificate of Business Valuation for professionals with a master's degree from an AACSB accredited school. This is reportedly the first post-graduate program in the nation that focuses specifically on valuation and reporting of intangible assets.

To earn a Business Valuation Specialization, students in the MPAC and MSF programs must take one or two extra classes in addition to their master's course requirements, which include a revised Business Valuation course, a new course in Valuing Intangible Assets, and a new course in Valuation for Financial Reporting. Both the Business Valuation Specialization and the Post-Graduate Certificate in Business Valuation will start in the 2009/2010 academic year.
