  • Description:
  • Master of Science in Accounting

    This degree is relevant for persons interested in positions in the Certified Public Accounting profession, with its specialty areas of assurance services and taxation, or in similar positions in industry, consulting firms, and government.

    This program develops the practice of accounting beyond the entry level addressed by the typical undergraduate accounting degree program.

    - Superior technical accounting knowledge, especially in an accounting specialty area, and the ability to apply it to further the goals of organizations.
    - Strong analytical skills, writing and oral communication skills as well as well-developed interpersonal skills including the ability to work effectively with groups and to provide leadership.

    There is increasing evidence that an undergraduate college degree may be insufficient to provide the breadth and depth of knowledge and skill development necessary for rapid advancement to leadership positions in business.

    Most states, including Michigan, have passed legislation requiring at least 150 semester hours of college education to obtain Certified Public Accountant certification.
