TNicole - MS Accounting, University of Delaware

The Department of Accounting and Management Information Systems offers a program leading to the Master of Science degree in Accounting. The objective of the M.S. in Accounting program is to extend the education of qualified students into advanced study in each of the major areas of the field of accounting (financial, managerial, information systems, auditing, and taxation), as well as in the supporting fields of finance and quantitative methods.

Why Pursue an MS Accounting Degree? Because you want to go further, the M.S. in Accounting provides advanced preparation for careers in public accounting, information systems consulting, industry, and government, and establishes a foundation for further study at the Ph.D. level in preparation for an academic career. Additional concentration toward more in-depth study in any of the five accounting areas is possible by the combination of elective courses and independent study/research with an interested faculty member.

Students in the M.S. in Accounting program pursue either a full-time or a part-time course of study. Full-time students with an undergraduate accounting major from an accredited AACSB institution should be able to complete the program within one calendar year. The program requires 30 hours of graduate credit which includes twelve credits of required accounting and twelve credits of required systems courses, plus three credits each of finance and statistics. Candidates for admission are invited to contact the Director of the M.S. Program, Dr. Kent St. Pierre, 206 Purnell Hall, (302) 831-2961.
