Curriculum

The MS Accounting program allows students to seamlessly connect studies with the contemporary business environment. Courses offer a balance of theoretical and practical knowledge relevant to accountants, which aims to build human capital for short and long term. 

The program consists of seven required core classes (25 credits) and five elective classes (20 credits) offered during autumn, winter, spring and summer quarters each academic year.
