Master of Professional Accountancy

College of Business at The University of Southern Mississippi

The School of Accountancy and Information Systems within the College of Business offers the Master of Professional Accountancy (M.P.A.) degree program.

The objective of the graduate (M.P.A.) curriculum is to provide more depth and breadth in accounting and related subjects than can be accomplished in a four-year program. Enrollment in the program is limited to those students who show a high probability of success.

The program leading to the MPA is essentially the culmination of a five-year program. A student who earns the bachelor's degree with a major in accounting may normally complete the MPA program with one year's additional work. A minimum of 30 hours of graduate work is required.
