The curriculum provides a foundation for acquiring important knowledge and leadership skills required for success in the accountancy profession. You’ll choose one of three tracks – financial/auditing, taxation and a generalist track – and you’ll learn to evaluate critically, think broadly and make ethical business choices. The summer study abroad program provides a unique international experience.
Upon completion of this program, you will have the educational requirements for licensure as a CPA in most states, and be prepared to work in public accounting firms, private industry and government agencies. If you have earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting, you can complete the program in ten months and participate in a CPA exam review during the summer following your matriculation.
At this time, the M.S. Accountancy program does not accept part-time or non-degree seeking students.
