University rank #601 (QS) , NY,
The MBA Accountancy degree is designed for students with baccalaureate degrees in fields other than accounting. Undergraduate accounting majors should consider the general MBA and use their electives to take accounting courses needed to meet CPA requirements or consider an MS degree. 

About

The program meets the educational requirements for the New York State CPA examination and conforms to the standards adopted by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business for accreditation of accounting programs.

The MBA Accountancy degree enables students to acquire knowledge and develop competence in overall management at the same time they gain a foundation in accounting theory and concepts. It equips students with the necessary tools to effectively interpret and use accounting and financial information and prepares them to enter the accounting profession.

New York State regulations for licensing as a CPA have changed. After August 1, 2009, all CPA exam applicants must have completed 150 credit hours of approved course work. In addition to 33 credit hours of accounting, the 150-credit-hour option requires at least 36 credit hours in general business electives. MBA Accountancy students will meet with a program advisor to review their requirements.

Students who entered the MBA prior to Fall 2016 can pursue an established major, or, if preferred, a custom-tailored interdisciplinary set of courses (General MBA option). The Zicklin School of Business offers a wide array of four-course majors. Students have the opportunity to pursue a credit-bearing internship in the discipline of their choice
