Program Overview

The MS in Accounting program is designed as a full-time/academic year program that builds on the body of knowledge developed in the undergraduate accounting major. Geneseo's small classes, accessible faculty and carefully designed curriculum all reflect the high quality of our highly regarded accounting program.

Advantages of an MS in Accounting

Earning an MS in Accounting provides the following benefits:

  • Enhanced preparation: Fifth-year graduates will arrive in the workplace with a superior level of skills and knowledge. This frequently translates to more rapid advancement and enhanced career prospects.
  • Career planning flexibility: Professional mobility requires a CPA license or the ability to become licensed. Many states which already have 150-hr. requirements will not provide reciprocity for out-of-state candidates who possess only 120 hours. Lack of 150 hours can adversely affect promotions contingent on a transfer, plans to move out of state, or advancement prospects in a market which includes some 150-hr. jurisdictions (e.g. metro NYC).
  • Shortened experience requirement: Masters graduates need only one year of work in order to meet the experience requirement for CPA licensure.
  • Performance on the CPA exam: There is a growing body of evidence which shows significantly enhanced pass rates for fifth-year students.
  • Mandatory Professional Licensure Disclosure
