About

Learning outcomes

The Master of Science in accounting program is designed for students with a variety of educational backgrounds and professional experience who want to enter the field of accounting. 

The M.S. degree in Accounting at the University of Rhode Island provides a strong accounting and business foundation for the student with an undergraduate degree in an area other than accounting. These students graduate with a theoretical understanding of accounting along with the necessary technical background. They are equipped to perform exceedingly well as professionals in public and corporate accounting.  

The objective for students with undergraduate degrees in accounting is to provide a fifth year of conceptual, theoretical, and technical education in accounting, finance, analytics, and other areas where the student can gain the most toward achieving his or her educational objectives. The Master of Science in accounting program has been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) since 1972.
