The MS in Accountancy is our most popular program and more specialized than the MBA in Accountancy. It is designed for students who have an accountancy or another business-related degree from an undergraduate institution. Students in the MS program have an opportunity to shorten their program length through course waivers, depending on the courses completed in the undergraduate study.
Our programs meet New York State requirements to sit for the Certified Public Accountant exam and the educational requirements of the Institute of Management Accountants and the Institute of Internal Auditors. They also conform to the standards adopted by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International for accreditation of accounting programs.
MS Degree Curriculum & Requirements
The credits for this program range from 30-70. The MSA is well-suited for those with bachelor’s degrees in accounting and other business areas desiring to pursue a career in public accountancy.
To achieve the minimum of 30 credits required to earn the MS in accountancy, students with baccalaureate degrees in accountancy who have taken courses equivalent to those listed above and earned a grade of B or better may choose electives from among any Zicklin graduate courses for which the prerequisites have been met. (This does not include courses on the list of general business requirements that have been waived).
