The Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) program is designed to meet growing industry demand. Graduates learn the fundamental concepts of accounting, develop effective accounting methods, gain the knowledge and skills required to sit for the CPA exam and make their master’s count in the business world.
The one-year master’s in accounting program offered through the AACSB-accredited John F. Welch College of Business has two concentrations: forensic accounting and international accounting.
- The forensic accounting concentration teaches students how to apply forensic accounting principles in complex financial transactions such as mergers and acquisitions, bankruptcies and contract disputes.
- The international accounting concentration is offered in response to the growing demand for accountants versed in international rules as a result of the globalization of business. Students will learn about the latest activities of the International Accounting Standards Board.
