The program can be completed in 18 months and has a core set of courses that provides students with a strong foundation for effective decision-making.
Track A: Analytics for Accountants
Track A is especially suited for accounting undergraduate students with a focus on quantitative analytics aspects of business.

A new Accounting Emphasis is now available with graduate courses. Specially created for our Accounting Undergraduate students, this allows students to take 9 graduate-level credits with no additional graduate-level fees as a part of this Accelerated Emphasis. After the 120 credits are completed, students can then choose to continue into the Master of Science - Management program on the specially created track "Analytics for Accountants" which has a quantitative focus.

Students will initially start by taking general education courses as well as introductory-level business courses, such as courses that train students in the basics of Marketing, Accounting, Human Resources, Management and Finance among others. Finally, students will take the Accounting courses and the graduate-level classes in research methods, management information systems and an advanced finance course. This emphasis will then be rounded out by completing a capstone course.
