The Master of Science in Accountancy will prepare you for professional practice in diverse financial accounting settings. With a rigorous curriculum in financial, cost and managerial accounting, attest services, information systems, taxation and regulation, the program will enhance your knowledge through theory, case study and real-world experience.
The MSA curriculum is based on the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) conceptual framework to give you the knowledge and skills you need for completion of the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination or the Certified Management Accountant exam. The program offers both the breadth and depth of knowledge necessary for a fulfilling career in accountancy.
Our professors will challenge you to think beyond the numbers and to examine theory and relevant application. You'll develop your critical thinking skills, applying the foundations of accountancy to problems encountered in professional practice. Through the MSA curriculum, you'll explore the serious responsibility of accountants and the ways in which they can impact society.
Coursework in the MSA program also focuses on the role of the professional accountant, with studies of ethics, accounting standards and management. Our graduates pursue productive careers as CPAs and CMAs in the areas of financial accounting and reporting, managerial accounting, taxation and attest services.
