The Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) is a rigorous program that offers students the opportunity to become qualified to take professional tests such as the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam and other certifications, as well as the opportunity to become qualified to enter the governmental accounting and corporate accounting fields. The program was designed with help from professional accountants on our Advisory Board who also review the program periodically to ensure the program continues to meet current professional practice and standards.
The MSA program provides a balanced broad education and in-depth understanding of the theoretical and practical concepts of accounting. The program meets American Institute of CPAs’ recommendations and Michigan State Board of Accountancy requirements for the CPA exam with appropriate electives. Our students have consistently performed well on the CPA exam and graduates are highly sought after by all major accounting firms and corporations.
