MS Accounting Courses
The M.S. in Accounting requires 30 hours of graduate credit, which includes eighteen credits of required accounting courses plus three credits of finance. Students may choose nine elective credits from a variety of disciplines including accounting, economics, finance, quantitative methods, marketing, management, or others, subject to approval by the M.S. Program Director. In addition, students may elect to work for course credit on an individual study basis with a faculty member on an approved research project.
The M.S. program has as prerequisites the equivalent of the accounting courses required for an undergraduate accounting major as well as completion of courses meeting American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) common body of knowledge requirements. The M.S. is designed as a one-year, 30 hour graduate program beyond these requirements. Students admitted to the program without these prerequisites may complete this work while in the M.S. program. Normally, those holding an undergraduate business degree from an accredited AACSB college will have met the common body of knowledge requirements outside the area of accounting.
Graduate level courses taken to fulfill the AACSB common body of knowledge requirements will not count towards fulfilling the 30-hour requirement of the M.S. in accounting.
