Graduate

Marvin Milich
Director, M.S. Program in Accounting
 
 
I would like to introduce you to our graduate program that culminates in a MS Degree in Accounting. This qualification leads to a number of possible career paths, regardless of whether you are starting your career or repositioning to new opportunities.
 
The recent global financial crisis has certainly made us aware of the importance of the study of accounting; including the ethical challenges facing preparers and auditors alike. We learned of the difficulties in valuing complex financial instruments, and the harmful effects of illiquidity when investors could not rely on reported valuations.
 
If you have a baccalaureate degree in accounting, then a MS Degree in Accounting requires 30 credits (10 courses) which you may complete on a part-time or full-time basis. We also offer an accelerated program in which you may complete some masters’ courses during your senior year as an undergrad. Finally, if you did not major in accounting for your bachelor’s degree, you may still achieve a MS degree by completing the undergraduate core requirements.
 
Expertise in accounting requires not only the study of accounting principles and applications, but also taxes, statistics, risk assessment (often on an industry basis), information systems, managerial decision-making, and the regulatory regime with which the client must comply. Our MS courses prepare you in these areas and the program meets the educational requirements for CPA licensure and a career in public accounting. Other career paths include working within industry, consulting, compliance, or conducting research for professional analyst firms or rating entities.
 
I personally advise all of our MS accounting degree candidates, and look forward to meeting you!
