The MS in Accounting/MS in Finance dual degree offers students the opportunity to take advantage of course overlap between the MS in Accounting and MS in Finance curricula.

The Master of Science in Accounting provides the specialized training required for success in the professions of corporate accounting, controllership, and public accounting. It also provides students the knowledge and number of credits required to complete the Uniform CPA Examination. The Master of Science in Finance provides the specialized training required for success in financial professions, including careers in corporate finance, financial institutions, and investment management. The program allows students to receive both the MS in Accounting  and MS in Finance simultaneously upon completion of 51 credit hours.

All courses in the program are offered on campus; many are also available on-line. Students may enroll on a full- or part-time basis, but course availability is greatest during the fall and winter semesters.

Admission is rolling, and students may begin the program in September or January. May admission is also usually possible for part-time students.
