Accounting MS

School of Management

Program Description

The Master of Science in Accounting degree program is designed for accounting students or professionals who have completed an undergraduate accounting degree from a U.S. college or university, and who seek to enhance their technical and professional skills through completion of an advanced degree in accounting. The one-year, full-time curriculum, together with most undergraduate accounting programs, should satisfy the 150-hour educational requirement for certification and licensure as a certified public accountant (CPA). Our MS accounting graduates have consistently out-performed the top largest accounting programs in New York State on the CPA exam.
