The MS in Accountancy is a 30 credit-hour program providing individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to keep pace with the changes in the practice of accounting. A unique feature of the program is its focus on risk management and compliance issues, preparing individuals for the growing complexities of the corporate world.
Many states require 150 total credits to sit for the CPA exam. This degree, along with a 120 credit-hour undergraduate accounting degree, satisfies the course hours required to sit for the exam. The combined MSA and MBA broadens a student’s foundation to include accounting, risk management, and compliance foundation to the breadth of knowledge gained in the MBA program.
