Undergraduate Business Major (32 credits)
As a Business major, who might have been interested in studying accounting but couldn’t transition into an accounting major as part of your undergraduate degree, you have your own pathway towards a CPA credential. The MSA program stands out to prior business majors as it takes into consideration what you have already learned in your undergraduate degree and adds required hours of learning to help prepare you for pursuing your license, or to help you excel within the accounting industry. Your advisor will help you develop a custom path for your program based upon your goals, while you build your accounting and overall business knowledge.
For those with an undergraduate degree in Business, our MSA program has 26-30 required credits, while offering students 2-6 elective credits. The level of required courses will help students form the necessary understanding of industry situations, while simultaneously helping to prepare them for future opportunities to become licensed as a CPA. Additionally, individual elective credits could be geared towards a student’s goals for a custom approach to your degree, or students are welcome to add additional credits to their program and apply their available credits towards general accounting classes, or one of our concentrations in Business Analytics, Fraud & Forensic Accounting, or Taxation. These concentrations are also available as stand-alone certificates.
