The MSAC program requires courses in financial accounting, auditing, taxation, and management accounting, thereby satisfying the state’s curriculum requirement.
Recently, the Department changed the sequencing on the basic graduate courses in financial accounting from two three-credit courses over two semesters to a single, integrated six-credit course over one semester. This change makes it possible for MSAC students to study full-time and complete their coursework within 12 months. Part-time students typically complete the program in two years.
