In the constantly changing regulatory environment for accounting professionals, it is imperative to have a solid foundation in accountancy coupled with responsible leadership. Accounting professionals choose Loyola's Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) degree program to advance their knowledge and skills. Our students include both candidates that come from undergraduate programs in accounting and business, as well as working professionals seeking career growth through enhanced academic qualifications.
Loyola’s Masters in Accounting program also attracts professionals looking to make a career change by training in a high-quality accounting program. To this end, we encourage students from non-business undergraduate programs who desire to gain advanced accountancy knowledge and training to apply for the program.
Our MSA students learn in an ideal setting, with Chicago being the headquarters for many national and international companies in a broad range of industries. Job opportunities at these established firms abound throughout the Chicago area. Big Four CPA firms, including Deloitte, KPMG, and Ernst & Young, as well as regional CPA firms and numerous corporations regularly interview and hire Loyola Masters in Accounting majors.
