Program Description:

Master of Science in Accounting (MSA)

Do more than just excel. 

In our MSA program, you’ll do more than just crunch numbers. You’ll focus on higher-level, big picture thinking and strategies that will help you succeed and lead change. Courses thoroughly cover effective strategies and practice with decision-making, verbal and written communication, and management/leadership skills. And our faculty members are practitioners who bring their real-world experience to the classroom. 

Even though you may be taking some—or all—of your classes online, you’re never learning alone. You’ll work alongside other motivated professionals, and professors offer feedback on your work and performance in real time. We also offer a community for our online MSA students to network and interact with other accountants, students, and professors through LinkedIn, helping to set you up for success after graduation.

Down to the last detail, we’ve designed our new accelerated MSA program with you in mind. You’ll be on your way to earning the graduate-level credits that may be part of your state’s requirements to sit for the CPA exam, and you can do so without rearranging your life. 

In our new accelerated MSA program, you’ll:    

  • Learn from professors who are also professionals with extensive real-world experience 

  • Take classes completely online, or you can choose a hybrid online, on-campus format

  • Be ready to bring real-world solutions to your current job in real-time

It’s no wonder U.S. News and World Report named us among the best online graduate business programs for 2014.
