          Here are a few of the most popular online certificates available in accounting, as well as some of the benefits of studying online rather than in a traditional brick and mortar college campus setting.

          Financial Management Certificate

          This is an advanced accounting certificate that includes current changes to policies in treasury, analysis and planning. Much of the certification course will be based on studying the current financial markets, how to restructure finances, how to manage risk and how to cultivate and maintain relationships with investors.

          A Financial Management Certificate should be earned online by those who already hold advanced degrees in accounting and who simply want to further their career in upper management and senior accountancy. The culmination of the online Financial Management Certificate includes an extensive examination to be completed in person.

          Fraud Examiner Certificate

          Just as the name implies, a Fraud Examiner Certificate revolves around understanding, preventing and revealing any financial fraud that occurs within large businesses and organizations. In large multinational companies, money can be spent and earned in billions of dollars at a time. Unfortunately, employees may see this as an opportunity to forge checks, overestimate prices or pad expense accounts.

          A Fraud Examining Certificate is a specialized course that will teach students how to protect the finances of a company. Although it is a limited field, it is a very lucrative career choice for accountants working in the financial industry.

          Financial Planning Certificate

          A Financial Planning Certificate teaches students how to help large companies, small businesses and individuals to plan for their financial futures. The certificate will include courses on estate planning, retirement, taxes brackets for employed individuals and even how to calculate and prepare for inflation over time. Since individuals are relying on their own savings and retirements funds more than ever, thanks to a growing concern with Social Security, financial planning services are forecast to increase over time.

          Those with an associate or bachelor's degree in any field can pursue this certification. Many students decide to study for this certificate online while working full time in the financial industry or even while taking care of children. The flexibility and convenience of online accounting certificates gives students a variety of options when it comes to how often and where they want to study and even take exams.

          Government Financial Planning Certificate

          This specialized accounting certificate prepares students for government accounting careers at the local, state or even federal level. The financial situations faced by counties, states, cities and the nation as a whole are different from those faced by individuals and businesses. Students may need to cover subjects like lending money to foreign nations, how much debt is acceptable to have on the books and how to deal with large staff numbers in a difficult economy.

          Each of these accounting certificates can be earned online. Since you can study in your free time whenever you have a computer and access to the Internet, they can fit into any schedule.

          Upgrade your credentials, increase your knowledge and expertise in the field of accounting completely online. Find the program that will help you fulfill these requirements without interfering with your job or your lifestyle commitments.
