Master of Science in Accounting Business Analysis

The MS in Accounting and Business Analysis (MSABA) degree helps students develop the advanced technical and analytical skills needed to succeed in a career in accounting. Students who earn the MSABA degree will qualify to sit for the CPA exam and explore a broad range of career opportunities in corporate accounting, public accounting, finance, entrepreneurship, government, nonprofit and beyond!

The program is open to students who have earned an undergraduate degree in accounting and MSABA students will choose to follow specific coursework in accounting, assurance and advisory (AAA) or tax. In addition to the advanced coursework in AAA or tax, students pursing the MSABA degree will complete coursework in a specialization area outside of accounting. The specializations that MSABA students can choose from include risk management, emerging technologies, sustainability, M&A deal advisory and wealth management. Each specialization will include specific coursework that students must complete.

In addition to building strong technical and analytical skills, this program will focus on overall professional development and ethics. Students will gain experience in public speaking and further develop skills in critical thinking, analysis, research and writing.

While no prior professional work experience is required for admission to the MSABA program, students will have many opportunities to engage with our strong network of employers.
