The master’s program develops skills and fulfills academic credit requirements to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. Its flexible options cater to students with a variety of educational backgrounds, including those without a foundational education in accounting.
The 33 to 48-credit Foundations program will utilize the existing curriculum currently offered for our 30-credit online Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) program and will add foundational accounting courses designed to prepare students for the more advanced topics. The flexible, variable credit program allows students to build a master’s degree that includes the foundational accounting knowledge they need, without having to re-take courses already completed at the undergraduate level.
These prerequisite courses will train students on financial statement preparation and analysis, tax procedures and planning, and information technology and data analytics. Program participants will receive training in management decision making and business processes. They will learn how to research current accounting topics independently to stay up-to-date on new laws and technologies in their field.
