Program Description

MS in Accountancy

California State University at Fullerton,Steven G. Mihaylo College of Business and Economics

The Master of Science in Accountancy provides the conceptual understanding and technical competence for a career in professional accounting. Many employment opportunities include public accounting, industrial accounting, and government. The program encompasses both a theoretical foundation in accounting and business administration as well as technical skills. Emphasis is placed on the development of a professional attitude and the capacity to deal with issues of accounting policy and ethics.

The curriculum is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in business administration with a concentration in accounting. Students with a bachelor’s degree in a field other than business administration may meet this requirement by completing the Business Foundation block within the MBA along with the undergraduate accounting concentration courses.

The curriculum requires 30 units beyond the baccalaureate degree which must be completed with a minimum GPA of 3.00. The study plan must include a minimum of 15 units at the graduate (500) level.

Students in consultation with their accounting advisor will select 9 electives. Students have the option of taking courses outside of the Accounting program to satisfy this requirement.
