Suffolk University’s Boston campus is at the heart of the Financial District—with each of the Big Four Accounting firms within a mile of where you’ll be studying.


Whether you’ll be working full-time or looking to complete an internship to boost your resume, Suffolk's downtown location creates an ease of balance while earning your MSA.

While earning your Master of Accounting at Suffolk University, you’ll:

  • Earn your degree in as few as 9 months (full-time) or 21 months (part-time)
  • Learn from industry experts who are either practitioners or accomplished scholars
  • Study from a curriculum that is guided by the cutting-edge industry practices identified by our Young Alumni Advisory Board 
  • Take courses that integrate Becker's CPA Exam Review Course, giving you supplemental material to help you ace your classes while also preparing you for success on the CPA exam. 
  • Specialize in areas like forensic accounting, business intelligence, governmental & not-for-profit accounting, taxation, or corporate accounting & finance

Suffolk’s MSA is designed for those who have a background in accounting as well as those who don't, so the length of the program depends on your level of experience. Take courses based on your schedule. You also have the option to take classes back-to-back in one evening or online on a space-available basis for added flexibility.
