Designed for Non-Accounting Majors

Our Accounting Immersion Program (AIP) is an additional 10 credit hour program designed for students who have a strong quantitative background and skill set, and are interested in earning a Master of Science in Accountancy from one of the top MSA/MAcc programs in the country.

If you are a finance, statistics, actuarial sciences, IT/information systems, analytics, economics, international business or math major and are interested in putting those skills to work in public accounting, audit, corporate finance or tax for financial institutions, business enterprises and governmental agencies, then this is the program for you.

5-Week Summer Immersion

Over the course of five weeks in the summer, you’ll take intermediate accounting I and II, strategic cost management (cost accounting), audit & assurance services and federal taxation. At the end, you’ll continue on with the No. 4 ranked Master of Science in Accountancy program and be on your way to an elevated career path.
