Program Overview: 

The College of Business Administration (CBA), the Singelyn Graduate School of Business, and the College of Professional and Global Education (CPGE) are proud to offer the Accelerated Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA). Cal Poly Pomona’s Graduate Business Programs have been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), a distinction that less than 5% of the world’s 13,000 business programs have earned. AACSB schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools.

The Accelerated Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) program is designed for working professionals who wish to advance their careers, either as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or in some other areas of accounting. Students in the accelerated program take 4 courses during both the Fall and Spring terms and 2 courses during the Summer term.

The program, comprising 31 semester units, features multidisciplinary, applied courses, enabling students to become co-creators of knowledge with faculty. Applicants to the Accelerated MSA degree program must possess either a Bachelor's degree in Accountancy from an accredited university OR a Bachelor's degree from an accredited university with advanced standing accounting coursework.  The accelerated MSA program allows students to finish within one year, and courses are offered exclusively on Saturdays in a combination of face-to-face, and hybrid courses.
