The Master of Science in Accountancy (MS/Accountancy) program is
in response to new developments in the accounting and business
worlds. Significant changes in the regulatory climate, including
the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, have increased the need for
graduate-level education. The 150-credit hour education
requirement established by the American Institute of Certified
Public Accountants (AICPA) also has significantly increased the
demand for graduate education in accounting.
