Summer applications for CSUEB’s MS in accountancy foundation courses due May 31

  • May 24, 2013 5:00am

The application deadline is quickly approaching for those needing to take the foundation courses for Cal State East Bay’s new Master of Science in accountancy (MSA) program. Students planning to enroll in the program, beginning in fall 2013, and have non-accounting backgrounds may be required to take foundation courses during the summer before starting the program in the fall. The application deadline for those needing to take foundation courses during the summer quarter is May 31.

The program, accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, is designed to prepare students for entry into accounting careers.

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).

Foundation courses can be satisfied by courses taken in an undergraduate program with a grade "B-" or better within the last five years. Two foundation courses will be held on Monday and Wednesday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and two foundation courses will be held on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the Hayward Hills Campus.
