Professional Accounting

Earning a Master of Science (MSc) often requires earning a bachelor’s degree in a related field first. Many master’s degree programs take one to two years to complete and require a thesis, project or internship before graduating. Earning an MSc in Professional Accounting could help graduates pursue professional careers in the finance industry.

What is an MSc in Professional Accounting? This program is usually designed for students who have already earned a Bachelor's in Accounting or a related business field. The master’s degree program expands on the bachelor’s degree program by encouraging students to think innovatively while building ethics, oral communication and writing skills. Coursework often involves studying financial statements, use of financial instruments, international accounting, advanced accounting techniques, research and internships.

Students who pursue a master’s degree in professional accounting may find that their coursework is applicable to many different aspects of business, both domestic and international. Aside from an internship, most coursework may even be able to be completed online, making this program perfect for international students or distance learners.

The cost of earning a Master in Professional Accounting depends on the school and length of program. Students are encouraged to thoroughly research their programs of choice to understand all of the costs involved.

Students who graduate with an MSc in Professional Accounting and pass the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam may be able to find employment as personal accountants or in the accounting department of public and private businesses. Taking courses that focus on international business subjects may also help graduates to find work in businesses all over the world. For programs that require an internship, that can be a great place to start for a career search.
