The MS in Accounting is the flagship graduate accounting program offered by the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. Designed for accounting professionals looking to maximize their marketability, the program will provide you with the tools you need to advance your organization – and your career – in this challenging legal and regulatory business environment.

In today's era of heightened accountability, organizations are charged with carrying out rigorous internal auditing to meet strict corporate governance and other accounting and auditing standards. The demand for highly trained accounting professionals who can successfully interpret new rules, better understand business control processes, and design effective internal controls has never been greater.

This innovative accounting program will prepare you for the expanded role accounting now plays in consulting, information management and strategic planning. It was developed by Smith's world-class faculty – leaders in the fields of accounting and auditing – to provide a reality-based learning environment. Developed for both full-time students and working professionals who enroll on a part-time basis, the program can be completed in 9 months as a full-time student and 16 months as a part-time student.

The program offers internal audit, public accounting and taxation track options, along with the opportunity to network with other accounting professionals.
