Is This Your Degree?

MSA students are both seasoned and aspiring professional accountants looking towards career advancement and certification exams. This is our only business degree with a prerequisite undergraduate education being either a degree in accounting or the equivalent coursework. Professional experience is not required, and UMHB students can begin coursework as early as their final undergraduate semester.

This degree is intentionally designed for accounting graduates who have entered the field but need to complete the remaining hours and course load to be eligible to take certification exams. Its structure is work friendly, utilizing the latest in distance-learning technology.

If your goal is to become a successful accountant, either public or private, the MSA degree is for you.
