Take an Important Step in Your Future Career Growth
Explore the challenges and opportunities that Mason’s Masters in Accounting program has to offer. Our masters in accounting degree is designed for recent baccalaureate graduates seeking to advance their career potential and also meet the credit requirements necessary to take the Virginia CPA examination.
To be eligble for our MS in Accounting (the full-time, part-time and accelerated programs), you must have a bachelor's degree in accounting or equivalent from an accredited institution or have completed 24 college credits in accounting.
Applicants who have a business degree, but do not have an accounting degree or equivalent will be provisionally admitted until they have completed the following courses or equivalents with a grade of B- or better: ACCT 331, ACCT 332, ACCT 351 and ACCT 461. The pre-requisites are currently only available in-person, not online. Online students with business degree backgrounds are eligible to take these pre-requisite courses in-person if admitted provisionally to the MS in Accounting program.
These requirements are put into place to make our graduates eligible to sit for the CPA exam.
