Build your career on a solid foundation.

Our MS in Accountancy program routinely draws students who excel in business, economics, or accounting. Every MS in Accountancy graduate qualifies to sit for the CPA examination in New York State and obtain subsequent licensure. Qualifying for the CPA examination in New York State also allows you to qualify for many other states. You can work with the faculty director of the MS in Accountancy program to determine if any other coursework is required for the particular state in which you would like to qualify.

If you have an undergraduate degree in accounting, the program can be tailored to broaden your skills in different areas. You may work with the Office of Student Engagement and the faculty director of the MS in Accountancy program to tailor your individual MS in Accountancy program.
