The Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) program was developed to respond to growing industry demand. Graduates will learn the fundamental concepts of accounting, develop effective accounting methods and gain the knowledge and skills essential to sit for the CPA exam. The one-year master’s in accounting program offered through the AACSB-accredited John F. Welch College of Business has two concentrations: forensic accounting and international accounting. The forensic accounting concentration will teach students how to apply forensic accounting principles in complex financial transactions such as mergers and acquisitions, bankruptcies and contract disputes. The international accounting concentration is offered in response to the growing demand for accountants versed in international rules as a result of the globalization of business. Students will learn about the latest activities of the International Accounting Standards Board. The MSA program can be completed in one year with hybrid courses taken in a trimester format. Courses will be offered online once-per month Saturday seminars. Saturday classes will meet at our main Fairfield campus from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. 62
