The Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) is a 30-credit degree program designed to help students from different backgrounds become capable accounting professionals. This degree allows students who have accounting undergraduate degrees to broaden their business knowledge with coursework in information systems and finance. Students who are newer to accounting can gain the skills to pursue a career in the field. In this degree, students can pursue either a professional accountancy option or an accounting information systems option.
Students generally are admitted to the Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) program each fall semester.
