Foundation courses are not required for application to the program. Students can apply to the program without the foundation courses. Foundation courses will be offered in the summer prior to the start of the MSA program for admitted MSA students who need the foundation course(s). The foundation courses needed for each applicant will be determined based on the transcripts submitted and the review by the MSA Program Director for equivalency. Students who need to take foundation courses need to apply for admission to the program in the Summer.

Foundation courses can be satisfied by courses taken in an undergraduate program with a grade "B-" or better within the last five years.

  • The two lower division courses, ACCT2251 and ACCT2253 can be transferred from courses taken at other universities or a community college.
  • The two upper division courses, ACCT3170 and ACCT3220 must be completed at an AACSB accredited 4 year university or college.

These four courses are offered regularly at CSUEB each semester. Non-CSUEB students can take these courses through Open University.
