Accounting (MS)


Return to Department  

Requirements for the Degree


The MS in Accounting requires 30 hours of graduate credit which includes fifteen credits of required accounting, three credit hours of business ethics, three credits of business statistics and nine credit hours of graduate electives.

MS Program Requirements


The MS program has as prerequisites the equivalent of four accounting courses required for an undergraduate accounting major as well as completion of courses meeting Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) common body of knowledge requirements. The MS is designed as a one-year, 30-hour graduate program beyond these prerequisites. Students admitted to the program without these prerequisites may complete this work while in the MS 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 will not count towards fulfilling the 30-hour requirement for the MS in Accounting.
