The MS in Accounting (MSA) at the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business is a 30-credit program that prepares students to be high performing professionals in public or corporate accounting.
The program can be completed in less than a year through two program formats - an
accelerated format includes an intense summer core typically followed by electives while our
traditional format allows students to take core courses with a blend of electives throughout the fall and spring semesters of an academic year. Babson’s Level 1 program is taught by faculty who are deeply connected to practice and industry, providing students with both a rigorous and practical foundation for exciting careers in the accounting profession.
The MS in Accounting is intended primarily for those with an accounting and/or business undergraduate degree. All students should have an academic foundation in Intermediate Accounting I, Intermediate Accounting II, U.S. Tax Accounting, and Managerial Accounting, as well as Auditing, Finance, and U.S. Business Law.
