MBA Degree Requirements - Accountancy - 61 - 72.5 credits

Students may complete the Accountancy program through the Full-Time MBA or Evening MBA only. All MBA students must maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 to be in good academic standing and to graduate.

The MBA with a major in accountancy is designed for students with baccalaureate degrees in fields other than accounting. (Undergraduate accounting majors should consider the general MBA and use their electives to take accounting courses needed to meet CPA requirements.) The program meets the educational requirements for the New York State CPA examination and conforms to the standards adopted by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business for accreditation of accounting programs. 

The MBA in accountancy enables students to acquire knowledge and develop competence in overall management at the same time they gain a foundation in accounting theory and concepts. It equips students with the necessary tools to effectively interpret and use accounting and financial information and prepares them to enter the accounting profession.

New York State regulations for licensing as a CPA have changed. After August 1, 2009, all CPA exam applicants must have completed 150 credit hours of approved course work. In addition to 33 credit hours of accounting, the 150-credit-hour option requires at least 36 credit hours in general business electives.  MBA in accountancy students will meet with a program advisor to review their requirements.

NOTE: The following requirements apply to students admitted in fall 2016 or later.  Students admitted prior to this date should consult an advisor in their MBA program office if they have questions about their degree requirements.

Foundational Skills (12 courses; 18 credits; Total CPA general business credits = 18) – All MBA students must complete all Foundational Skills courses.  No waivers, substitutions, or transfer credits will be granted.
