M.S. in Accountancy

California State University, East Bay's Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) program is an AACSB accredited, high quality accounting program designed to prepare students for entry into the accounting profession.

The MSA program provides students with the 36 accounting-education units required for the U.S. Certified Public Accountants (CPA) exam. The program also satisfies both the accounting and ethics study of the new 150 hour educational requirements for CPA licensure in California (effective in California starting January 1, 2014).

Graduates of the MSA program will have opportunities to pursue a wide range of professional accounting careers in public accounting firms, corporations, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations.

This is a cohort based program. There will be one cohort each year starting in the Fall quarter. Students are guaranteed the program courses to be able to complete the entire program in one year (four quarters).
