This 30 hour Accounting program at the University of New Orleans further prepares students for careers in public, industrial, and not-for-profit accounting through advanced study in financial and managerial accounting, auditing, taxation, and accounting systems. It also is a foundation for entrance into doctoral programs and other professional studies.


We offer a master degree in Accounting at the University of New Orleans. The graduate programs build on the students' technical competence in undergraduate accounting and business courses. To provide a background for successful study at the graduate level, a series of foundation courses or their equivalents must be completed before enrolling in courses for graduate credit.

Concentrations in specialized fields of study can be obtained under the non-tax Master of Science program. Each concentration consists of 3 or 4 specific courses. These courses fill the required accounting or non-accounting electives in the Master's programs; thus, no additional hours of course work are required to obtain a concentration.
