The College of Management’s MSA degree program leads to the master of science in accounting, for which students complete accounting and other business courses. The MSA is designed as an affordable and accessible program for current and prospective accountants, auditors, and analysts who seek a curriculum that will prime them for success at both the regional and global levels. The program develops the broad analytical skills critical for candidates specializing in accounting or auditing and is particularly well suited for those looking to meet the requirements for the Uniform Certified Public Accountant examination in Massachusetts. In addition to readying students to sit for the exam, the program enables candidates to fulfill the commonwealth’s 150-credit-hour CPA certification requirements. The College of Management’s small classes provide students with personalized attention from faculty, while its close relationships with the professional accounting community extend the depth of its program of graduate accounting education.
The MSA program is designed to offer students of all backgrounds the opportunity to begin or broaden their accounting education. An undergraduate degree in a business field is not required to enter the MSA program. Students in the program may study either full time or part time. Students usually complete the MSA program in one to three years, depending upon the number of courses taken during the fall, spring, and summer terms and on course waivers granted for undergraduate or prior graduate credit.
The College of Management is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)— the International Association for Management Education.
