Whitman MS in Accounting Experience
The MS in Accounting program at the Whitman School of Management produces graduates with the highest level of professionalism and the educational requirements needed to take the CPA exam in New York and many other states. This rigorous program attracts students with a background in accounting and those with education in other disciplines. If entering with a bachelor's degree in accounting, students complete 30 credits in one year, while those without a degree in accounting are required to take up to an additional year of study, depending on the student's previous business and accounting coursework.
Whitman MS in Accounting students take advanced courses in financial statement analysis, strategic cost analysis, advanced auditing, taxes and business strategy, economics, and statistics, along with a variety of electives to complement their career goals. The recently redesigned curriculum prepares students for the expanding roles accounting professionals play in business strategy, consulting, information management, planning, and decision-making.

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.
