Set yourself apart

Stand out from other CPAs with a graduate degree

If you’re interested in obtaining your CPA license and working in public accounting or industry, the Bryan School’s MS in Accounting (MSA) may be the right program for you.

We accept students into our program from varied academic and professional backgrounds. You need not have earned a bachelor’s in accounting prior to admittance. If you are contemplating changing careers and entering the high demand field of accounting, the UNCG MSA offers the flexibility and career connections that you need.

The mission of the MSA program is to provide an opportunity for students to pursue intensive studies in accounting and related subjects. Through our exclusive internship program, career services support, and hands-on learning in the classroom, the program provides students with a foundation for successful careers in public accounting and industry.

The MSA program also serves as the department’s primary vehicle for preparing students to seek qualifications such as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). All students will complete advanced financial accounting, taxation and auditing courses as part of the program.
