AACSB Accredited

Accounting (MSA)

The School of Management’s MSA program is designed to build on your undergraduate education by preparing you for careers in accounting. It enables you to complete the 150 credit hours required to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and prepares you to successfully complete the exam. The program is open to students with a bachelor’s degree in accounting, another business discipline, as well as non-business disciplines.

The MSA program is taught in the NetPlus! format. NetPlus! is an innovative, mixed-mode program that blends the personal interaction of traditional classroom activities with the anytime, anywhere convenience of modern online learning. It is designed to make the UM-Flint MSA program conveniently accessible to busy professionals from a wide range of geographic areas. Electives in the program are available in the Traditional and/or NetPlus! formats.

Weekend classroom sessions (Friday and Saturday), held every six weeks on campus, enhance the quality of the learning experience. Students typically enroll in two courses in the fall, winter, spring and summer terms (12-week terms) for program completion in under two years.
