Interested in a Career in Accounting & Business? Didn’t study Accounting?  The MS in Accounting/MBA is a full-time, 15 month program that begins each year in late May. Students complete a three-month paid residency from January – March at one of the partner accounting firms. Firm representatives are impressed by the candidates that are recruited into the program as they come from competitive schools, have strong liberal arts backgrounds, and excellent academic portfolios. Liberal Arts/non-business majors tend to have strong interpersonal and communication skills, making them valuable assets to an engagement team. The MSA/MBA provides the technical and functional specialization that help round out the liberal arts education. As a result, there is virtually 100% job placement upon graduation.
