Whitman MS in Professional Accounting Experience
In today’s marketplace, rapid innovation and business without borders require accounting professionals to think critically and conceive strategic solutions for complex commerce scenarios. The Joseph I. Lubin School of Accounting in the Whitman School of Management offers an M.S. in professional accounting that combines a rigorous curriculum with practical industry experience to fully prepare you for the challenges of a career as a practicing accountant, consultant or manager.
Our program accommodates students with a background in accounting as well as those with education in other disciplines. If entering with a bachelor’s degree in accounting, you will complete 30 credits to earn your M.S. in professional accounting. If entering without an undergraduate accounting degree, you will need to take additional courses during your time in the program, depending on your previous business and accounting coursework. This path could lengthen your time in the program.
As you progress through our program, you will have many opportunities to enhance your education through participation in professional associations, seminars, corporate visits and networking events. The experiences in and out of the classroom— combined with Whitman’s excellent reputation among recruiters from leading firms, including Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PwC—will prove significantly advantageous as you go before potential employers and will equip you to positively impact the bottom line of any company.

In addition to training for traditional accounting roles, such as the CPA, Accounting@Syracuse graduates also will gain the skills required for roles such as financial analyst, corporate treasurer, controller, auditor or financial consultant.
