Accounting: M.S., M.S./MBA, 4+1

The objective of the M.S. in accounting is to extend the education of qualified students into advanced study in the field of accounting. In taking the student beyond the level of study offered by an undergraduate program in accounting, the M.S. provides additional preparation for careers in public accounting, industry and government. The M.S. in accounting may also be used to establish a foundation for further study at the Ph.D. level in preparation for an academic career.

Students in the M.S. in accounting may pursue either a full-time or a part-time course of study. Full-time students with an undergraduate accounting major from an accredited AACSB college should be able to complete the program within one calendar year.

Applicants can be considered for admission directly into the M.S. in accounting program or conditionally via ELI-CAP (English Language Institute-Conditional Admissions Program). Current UD undergraduate students can be considered for admission to the accelerated B.S./M.S. in accounting. A dual degree in the MBA and M.S. in accounting programs is available to graduate students.
