AACSB Accreditation

Bloomsburg University is a leader in preparing students for rewarding careers in accounting. BU's accounting students benefit from personal contact with faculty who possess real-world accounting experience and graduates are recruited and hired by leading accounting firms in the country.

The Master of Accountancy is designed for individuals who have already completed an undergraduate course of study in accounting and who need to complete graduate coursework to fulfill the AICPA 150 hour requirement for CPA certification.

The program consists of 10 courses (30 graduate credits: 21 Accounting, 3 Finance, and 6 Business Electives credits). Course descriptions are in the graduate catalog. Review for the CPA examination is incorporated into the course of study. Classes meet once or twice a week for 15 weeks in spring and fall semesters. Summer session courses are on-line or hybrid for 6 or 12 week sessions. Class meetings are on the Bloomsburg campus.
Students can choose to take courses on a full- or part-time basis. Full-time students may be able to finish the program in just one year; most part-time students finish within just three years. Course offerings are rotated between daytime and evenings to accommodate part-time students.

Students must comply with Graduate School and the Master of Accountancy program policies and procedures, completing all graduation requirements with an average 3.00/4.00 G.P.A. within six years.
