Course info


The Clark University M.S.A. program readies you for a career in public accounting and financial management. You will be able to develop and analyze accounting information, provide assurances of financial control and accuracy, develop investment and tax strategies, and advise top-level managers as they make important decisions.

Clark’s M.S.A. program consists of 10-12 units. Students without previous accounting and quantitative coursework are required to take 2 units of Foundations coursework in their first semester. Students who can waive both Foundations requirements can complete the program in 10 units.

Every degree candidate takes six units of core courses and four units of elective courses from the lists below. Students with a strong accounting background may substitute elective courses for up to three of the core courses. The length of the program will not be less than ten units. One or both of the foundation courses may be waived based on prior coursework or waiver exams.

Completion of a graduate internship is required for all full-time M.S.A. students except: those who have 3+ years of professional business work experience; those with full-time employment during the length of the program; and those who are participating in an exchange program (ex. Sorbonne, Trier, etc.).

Foundation Courses (2 units)

Students may satisfy one or both of the foundation course requirements through prior undergraduate or graduate coursework, or by passing a waiver exam. Waivers and eligibility for waiver exams are only considered and finalized at the time of admission into the program.

Waiver of the financial accounting requirement is based on successful completion (B- or better within 6 years) of an undergraduate or graduate financial accounting course for credit, or a passing grade on the accounting waiver exam. If not waived, students will take ACCT 4101 Foundations of Financial Accounting to meet the foundation requirement.

Waiver of the quantitative requirement is based on successful completion (B- or better within 6 years) of an undergraduate or graduate course for credit in statistics, operations management, or economics; or a passing grade on the statistics waiver exam. If not waived, students will take STAT 4300 Data Driven Decision Making to meet the foundation requirement.
