Curriculum Overview

The curriculum for the M.S. in Accounting provides an opportunity for promising, motivated students to earn both a B.S. and an M.S. in Accounting within five years. The program consists of 30 semester hours of graduate-level coursework.

The core requirements consist of 21 semester hours and are required of all students competing the program. Nine additional semester hours can be selected as electives with at least six semester hours required as accounting electives. The remaining course to be completed is an elective that can be selected from the MBA or M.S. in Management program, with the approval of the program’s director.

Students will have the opportunity to complete a professional internship and are encouraged to complete a non-credit CPA exam prep course immediately after graduation. Students without an undergraduate degree in accounting are required to complete prerequisite courses, some of which may be offered during the Elon Summer Term prior to entering the program.
