About

The University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign has consistently ranked among the top accountancy schools in the United States. The Public Accountancy Report and Accounting Degree Review have rated the Illinois graduate accounting program as one of the top accountancy masters programs in the United States.

Overview

Overview

The MS in Accountancy program at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign offers a one year accounting degree. Our students include those with limited prior accounting education as well as students with an undergraduate degree in accounting. The MSA core curriculum applies to all of our students. However, for those students who have previously taken significantly equivalent courses to any of those in our core curriculum, we will work with our students to find a suitable replacement to recognize the sufficiency of their prior accounting education. Our MSA program prepares students for success in accounting careers and provides the academic prerequisites for candidates who wish to take the United States Uniform Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam.

The online Master of Science in Accountancy (iMSA) is a fully online program. The highly-engaged delivery format and our world-renowned faculty provide students with a hands-on and practice-oriented learning experience. The iMSA prepares students for success in accounting careers and provides the academic prerequisites for candidates who wish to take the United States Uniform Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam.

The iMSA is designed for those already working in the accounting field looking to refresh their skill set and for those who intend to use the degree to enter the field for the first time. A mirror of the on-campus Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) curriculum, the online MSA (iMSA) uses a flexible program format. It allows students to balance academic life with other obligations. The shortest time to degree completion with an August start date is four semesters (18 months) and with a January start date 6 semesters (24 months).  Students can take as many as eight semesters (36 months) to complete the degree. 

The University of Illinois accountancy programs have consistently been ranked in the top three by the US News & World Report and the Public Accounting Report.
