MS in Accounting/MS in Finance

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 program offers specialized coursework applicable to careers in corporate accounting, controllership, public accounting, and the financial professions. Students select either the corporate finance or the investments concentration in the MS in Finance. Students in the program can complete the CPA exam preparation course through CPAexcel® at a significant discount, and even qualify to receive a 100% reimbursement. 

The program is open to students with strong quantitative and analytical skills, regardless of their undergraduate majors.

The program allows students to receive both the MS in Accounting and the MS in Finance simultaneously upon completion of 51-57 credit hours, depending on applicable course exemptions and course choices. 

All courses in the program are offered on campus; many are also available on-line. You may enroll on a full- or part-time basis during the fall and winter semesters, and some courses are often available during the summer. The program often can be completed within 24 months of full-time study.

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

University of Michigan-Dearborn students who have been admitted to the program may take up to 6 graduate credits during the final semester of their undergraduate program.  Students must successfully complete their undergraduate degree before taking any additional graduate-level courses.


The MS in Accounting/MS in Finance requires 17 courses or 51 credit hours.

Students who wish to pursue the dual MS in Accounting and MS in Finance must meet the entrance requirements of both programs.
