  • Course description
    The primary objective of the Master of Science in Accounting (MSAC) is to provide specialized, graduate level education to persons seeking positions as professional accountants in industry, government, and nonprofit organizations. In addition, the MSAC program offers graduates much of the academic background necessary to pursue certification in public accounting (CPA) and management accounting (CMA).

    Students who have not earned degrees from appropriate fields of study may be required to take additional coursework as a prerequisite for completing the program.

    The program provides a well-balanced integration of theoretical accounting concepts and modern quantitative methods in decision-making.

    This program offers specializations that allow students to tailor their degrees to fit their careers and learning goals. It is an exciting educational option for students looking to increase their understanding, advance their careers, and expand their opportunities in the following areas:

        * Accounting Information Systems
        * Controllership
        * Public Accounting*
        * Taxation

    Credits, degrees, certificates and diplomas earned from Strayer University do not automatically qualify the holder to participate in professional certification examinations to practice accounting professions in a particular state. Persons interested in practicing a regulated profession such as the Certified Public Accountant should contact the appropriate state regulatory agency in the state where you hope to work.

    Notice to CPA Exam Candidates:
    Completion of a Strayer University program, to include the concentration in Public Accounting in the Master of Science in Accounting degree, does not guarantee a student will pass the CPA Examination.
