Master of Science in Accounting
For professionals seeking to either advance within or transition to a career in the field of accounting, the Martin J. Whitman School of Management offers a Master of Science in Professional Accounting degree in this flexible online format. The online program features the same curriculum as Whitman’s on-campus accounting program, from which alumni have gone on to work at some of the top accounting firms in the nation, including Deloitte, Ernst & Young, and PWC.
Based on their educational background—including both undergraduate and graduate coursework—students will be placed into one of three customized sequences of study: the Accounting, Business, or Foundational Sequence. Each semester is 12 weeks and credit hours required to complete the program correspond to the sequence of study as well as students’ previously completed coursework.
While this schedule is only an example of a possible course arrangement, it should serve as a useful guide when exploring the Accounting@Syracuse experience:
- Accounting Sequence (30 Credits) — For students who hold an undergraduate degree in accounting.
- Business Sequence (33–42 Credits) — For students who hold an undergraduate degree in business.
- Foundational Sequence (45–48 Credits) — For students who hold an undergraduate degree in any subject other than business or accounting.
A student’s customized course plan within a sequence of study will be determined after an admissions decision has been rendered. The sooner an application is received, the sooner an appropriate number of required credits and sequence can be determined by admissions.
