Master of Science in Accountancy

The Department of Accounting and Finance offers the Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) degree, which has been approved by the Massachusetts State Board of Accountancy as “Option-One” compliant for students wishing to sit for the CPA exam. The MSA program prepares individuals for management level careers in accounting. This highly focused program prepares graduates with technical accounting skills and managerial problem solving abilities. The MSA satisfies the Massachusetts 150-hour CPA exam education requirement.

The MSA is targeted at working professionals. The program is designed so that applicants who have earned undergraduate degrees in non-business disciplines may earn the MSA by completing a series of mandatory prerequisites covering topics in accounting, finance and business. In addition to imparting technical accounting skills, the MSA program also stresses ethics, writing across the curriculum and problem solving skills, reflecting the changing roles of accountants and CPAs within organizations. Rather than offering discrete courses in these areas, they are effectively integrated throughout the curriculum.
