Who does the program serve?

Why MSA Foundations?

Previously, students admitted to the online Master of Science in Accountancy at Boise State were required to have taken six specific upper-division courses. While those courses are common in accountancy undergraduate programs, applicants from related fields had to take these prerequisites at other institutions or as undergraduate students at Boise State. Now, prospective students can enter a graduate program that begins with these prerequisites for a seamless experience at Boise State.
