Advantages of an M.S. in Accounting

Earning an M.S. in Accounting provides the following benefits:

  • Enhanced preparation: Fifth-year graduates will arrive in the workplace with a superior level of skills and knowledge. This frequently translates to more rapid advancement and enhanced career prospects.
  • Career planning flexibility: Professional mobility requires a CPA license or the ability to become licensed. Many states which already have 150-hr. requirements will not provide reciprocity for out-of-staters who possess only 120 hours. Lack of 150 hours can adversely affect promotions contingent on a transfer, plans to move out of state, or advancement prospects in a market which includes some 150-hr. jurisdictions (e.g. metro NYC).
  • Shortened experience requirement: Masters graduates need only one year of work in order to meet the experience requirement for CPA licensure.
  • Performance on the CPA exam: There is a growing body of evidence which shows significantly enhanced pass rates for fifth-year students.
