Our Dual-Degree BS/MS in Accounting (4+1) program answers the widespread demand for well-trained certified public accountants. The curriculum takes 5 years and provides a foundation in the principles, concepts and technical practices of accounting, while the master of science degree covers advanced skills and accounting theory. The curriculum is designed to help you seamlessly transition from undergraduate to graduate study and help you complete the 150-hour education requirement for CPA certification.
The dual-degree program is primarily designed for outstanding undergraduate accounting majors or minors, but students in other School of Business majors also may apply. Qualified students apply for this program in the spring of their junior year or the fall of their senior year.
Dual-degree accounting students have access to the same internship opportunities as traditional BS and MS program students. They also can take advantage of networking events and career fairs that bring representatives to campus from Big 4, international, regional and local CPA firms, as well as from financial services firms, investment banks, various other companies, regulatory agencies and not-for-profits.
We also offer the opportunity to complete your BS/MS in Accounting in an accelerated dual-degree format (4 years total).
