Complete the following core requirements for the Master of Science in Accounting
The mission of the Master of Science in Accounting program is to equip students seeking positions as professional accountants in industrial, financial, governmental, global, and non-profit institutions with the specialized knowledge and skills demanded of the profession and necessary for success. The program also aims to provide graduates with as much of the academic background necessary to pursue certifications such as public accounting (CPA) and management accounting (CMA). The program provides a global focus with a balanced integration of theoretical and practical accounting standards. These standards are blended with quantitative methods in decision-making and a response to current trends and demands in the profession – especially forensic accounting, advanced accounting practices, and use of technology and accounting information systems in the workplace.
