Why Should an Accounting Student Consider your Program?
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 Jack 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.
