About

The Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) program in the Manning School of Business at University of Massachusetts Lowell provides an economically affordable opportunity for qualified students to meet the licensing requirements to become Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) or to prepare for accounting careers in the corporate or government/nonprofit environment.

Overview

The Massachusetts Board of Public Accounting has classified MSA program at University of Massachusetts Lowell and deemed the program to be substantially equivalent to AACSB standards. Any student who earns a graduate degree in accounting from a Level 1 program is judged to have satisfied the educational requirements to take the CPA exam. Students who earn degrees from non-Level 1 programs must demonstrate that they have satisfied such educational requirements. 

Learning outcomes

Therefore, our MSA program’s Level 1 status makes it easier for UMass Lowell accounting graduates to eventually become Certified Public Accountants (CPA).

The MSA will prepare graduates to succeed in a competitive environment and a respected profession, one whose members continue to be in high demand from public accounting firms, financial institutions, industry, government agencies, municipalities, schools and hospitals, and charitable organizations. Most courses are available online, and the program is open to either full-time or part-time students.
