We can help you launch a successful accounting career, regardless of your undergraduate major.

The Master of Science in Accounting at the University of Michigan-Dearborn offers specialized training for careers in corporate accounting, controllership, and public accounting. If you're new to the field, we'll get you started with the basics. If you have a bachelor's degree in accounting, we offer advanced courses that add real value to your professional bottom line.

Whatever your background, we'll help you work toward your CPA credential. We even partner with a private sector CPA exam preparation firm to further encourage your success.

You can complete the MS in Accounting in the evenings on campus or in a hybrid online format. You'll enjoy flexible schedules, evening and online course options, and opportunities to network with hiring managers at large and small firms.
