The Master of Science in Accounting program at Kent State prepares students for responsible leadership positions in public, corporate, nonprofit and government accounting. The combination of coursework, with the option of an internship, provides students with a strong theoretical foundation in accounting as well as an understanding of the practical applications of the discipline. Our curriculum provides advanced accounting coursework in traditional areas with the opportunity to specialize in assurance services, taxation or a combination of the two.
The program also emphasizes the development of communication, interpersonal and analytical problem-solving skills through the use of case studies, team and individual projects, and computers for accounting and auditing applications.
Upon program completion, students will be considered as having met the educational qualifications for the CPA, CMA and other professional examinations, including the educational requirement for sitting for the CPA exam in the state of Ohio.
If you have an undergraduate accounting major, you can complete the MS in Accounting program in 12 months
