The Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) and Master of Science in Accountancy, Taxation (MSAT) programs provide the opportunity to enhance your professional competence and acquire the skills necessary to offer value-added services to clients. Each program builds upon knowledge and skills previously acquired in undergraduate accounting courses.
These degree programs are appropriate for students with either or both of the following goals:
- Accounting professionals who want to expand their knowledge and become familiar with recent developments in the accounting field.
- Recent undergraduate accounting graduates who want to expand their understanding of accounting and earn enough college credits to meet the minimum required for the CPA Exam.
Students may apply for graduate assistantships covering tuition and fees plus a stipend. Applications for graduate assistantships must be received in the Business Graduate Studies office by February 1 of each year. Typical assignments include research assistantships, teaching assistantships, or specific project assignments.
Due to our location in Boise, many local internship opportunities are available. MSA and MSAT students may apply up to 3 credit-hours from an internship toward their graduation requirements.
