Program Details

The online Master of Science in Accounting (M.S.A.C.) from Seton Hall University’s Stillman School of Business does more than prepare students for licensure as a Certified Public Accountant. In this degree program, designed for individuals with an undergraduate degree in business, students build the foundation for an accounting career, prepare for the CPA exam and develop the networks required for success. Students also can tailor their learning to a specific area of interest through a choice of electives and have the opportunity to explore career options through the assistance of a dedicated career advisor. Students learn from full-time faculty who are experts in their fields and have strong relationships with large public accounting firms and regional accounting firms.

The Stillman School of Business is among the top 1 percent of institutions worldwide to receive both business and accounting accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International)
