MS in Accounting

Master of Science in Accounting — Coming Fall 2023*

Program Overview

Rowan University’s Rohrer College of Business is expanding its offerings to include a Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) degree where students can develop specialized accounting skills and knowledge for careers in a stable and steadily growing industry. The career prospects are plentiful and financially fulfilling. Students in this program will be required to complete 30 credits in a flexible environment that will prepare them for a lifetime in an industry with unlimited potential for individual growth and learning.

Whether planning to pursue one’s CPA or other highly recognized accounting certification, the MS Accounting program is a great place to start. With a more centralized focus in accounting -- as opposed to the broad focus in a Master of Business Administration (MBA) – the alumni from the MSA will be prepared to sit for the CPA exam. Potential career opportunities include accounting, audit, tax, and consulting with a CPA firm, industry, non-profit, or governmental entity serving in roles such as auditor, tax accountant, forensic accountant, cost accountant, investment banker, etc.

By selecting our MS Accounting program, students will experience hands-on support from highly-credentialed faculty, academic advisors, and advisory committees including a highly qualified Accounting Advisory Board and Executive in Residence. Students will also have access to the networking connections of Rowan faculty with a specifically strong focus in the South Jersey/Greater Philadelphia area. However, upon completion of the MS Accounting program, students will be qualified to work anywhere.
