Accounting MBA

Course Description

In addition to the educational preparation for a career leading to top management, the master of business administration—accounting fulfills the educational requirements that allow students to sit for the New York State Certified Public Accountancy exam. The program stresses the skills necessary for the design, operation, and control of accounting information systems.

Plan of study

Students complete foundation, accounting, and business courses. The program offers two tracks, one for students with an undergraduate degree in accounting and one for students who have an undergraduate degree in a field outside of business, economics, statistics, or accounting.

Admission requirements

To be considered for admission to the MBA—accounting program, candidates must fulfill the following requirements:

- Hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution,

- Have working knowledge of algebra and statistics,

- Submit official transcripts (in English) of all previously completed undergraduate and graduate course work,

- Submit scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Exam (GRE) (GMAT preferred for international applicants and those applying for scholarships),

- Submit a personal statement,

- Submit a current resume, and

- Complete a graduate application.

- International applicants whose native language is not English must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Minimum scores of 580 (paper-based) or 92 (Internet-based) are required. Scores from the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) will be accepted in place of the TOEFL exam. The minimum acceptable score is 7.0. The TOEFL or IELTS requirement is waived for native speakers of English or for those submitting transcripts from degrees earned at American institutions. For additional information on the IELTS, visit http://www.ielts.org.

Accepted students can defer enrollment for up to one year. After one year, a new application must be submitted and will be re-evaluated based on the most current admission standards.

Completed applications for admission should be on file in the Office of Graduate Enrollment Services at least four weeks prior to registration for the next academic semester for students from the United States, and up to 10 weeks prior for international students applying for student visas.
