If you’re ready to enhance your skills in corporate or public accounting, South University’s Master of Science in Accounting online program can help you acquire the practical, real-world knowledge you need, all in a supportive environment with faculty committed to your success.

In your online accounting master’s degree courses, you can improve your analytic thinking and math competencies, while gaining familiarity with accounting, auditing, and taxation principles that may help you to excel as an accountant in a number of business settings.

To better meet your needs, our Master of Science in Accounting online program is available in two formats. If your bachelor’s degree is from a field outside business, the MS in Accounting online curriculum will include seven MBA foundation and core courses to help you master key business concepts. On the other hand, if you hold a business bachelor’s degree, you’ll dive right into the accounting core courses. In either format, you can choose from one of several topics for your capstone course, allowing you to gain additional expertise in the area that most interests you.

After completing the online accounting master’s degree program, you should be able to:

  • Demonstrate a thorough understanding and application of accounting, auditing, and taxation principles in a variety of business settings.
  • Use critical analysis skills to apply contemporary accounting principles and practices to the decisions faced by evolving business organizations.
  • Integrate knowledge, principles, and professional viewpoints from the accounting and business domains to articulate innovative solutions to organizational challenges.
  • Critique and apply the concepts, principles, and methods gleaned from professional and academic accounting research to challenges in the accounting profession.
  • Demonstrate ethical perspectives, values, and professional responsibilities required in the accounting profession.

Prepare for Taking Your CPA Exam

When combined with a completed bachelor’s degree, the accounting and business coursework in the MS in Accounting online program may qualify you to take the Certified Public Accounting Examination. All students should familiarize themselves with the specific candidacy requirements of the State Board of Accountancy in the particular state in which they wish to take the CPA examination.

South University does not guarantee third-party certification/licensure. Outside agencies control the requirements for taking and passing certification/licensing exams and are subject to change without notice to South University.
