Online Master of Science in Professional Accounting
The Master of Science in Professional Accounting builds on the real-world knowledge of working accounting professionals who have an undergraduate accounting degree and want to become a CPA. In this program, you’ll attend classes with peers who’ve either studied or worked in various accounting roles. As a result, you’re able to share experiences and learn from classmates, while building your professional network.
Master of Science in Accounting
The Master of Science in Accounting is designed for graduates of non-accounting programs, who wish to learn more about the accounting discipline. This ethics-centered degree provides the skills and knowledge needed for success as a CPA. Students in the program come from rich and varied backgrounds and together immerse themselves in the field of accounting with the shared goal of becoming a CPA.
