Program Details

The Master of Accountancy degree program provides students with a greater understanding of accounting and business than is possible in an undergraduate program. The program prepares students for careers as professional accountants in financial institutions, government, industry, nonprofit organizations and public practice.

The MSA program at the Isenberg School of Management requires 30 credits of graduate coursework which includes 7 required core classes and 3 elective classes. We developed the curriculum in close consultation with our Accounting Advisory Council and with feedback from our students. The Advisory Council is made up of alumni partners and executives who are strongly committed to our program. The knowledge you gain in the MSA program will be applicable to the CPA exam and your future career.
