The Master of Accountancy Program provides students with advanced skills in accounting in areas of high demand: internal audit, forensic accounting, and accounting information systems. The program also provides students the opportunity to pursue a graduate degree while fulfilling the additional hours needed to sit for the CPA examination.
The program consists of 12 courses. The core provides students with advanced courses that provide competencies that are highly valued by the profession. The set of electives allow students to pursue individual paths based on each student's prior coursework and career aspirations.
This program is intended for students with an undergraduate major in accounting, or equivalent credit hours in accounting (with approval of the program director).
