The MS in Accounting (MSA) at the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business is a 30-credit program (18 credits for core courses plus 12 credits for electives) that can be completed by most students in less than a year.
Students are enrolled full time during the summer, and participate in an 18-credit core. Electives are the remaining 12 credits, and can be taken at the student’s pace.
Prerequisites for the Babson MSA include the following subjects that have to be completed prior to matriculation:
- Intermediate Accounting I
- Intermediate Accounting II
- U.S. Tax Accounting
- Managerial Accounting
Additionally, students must complete Auditing, Finance, and U.S. Business Law by the time they graduate from the Babson MSA program. Please note, if Auditing, Finance, and U.S. Business Law were not taken prior to starting the Babson MSA, they may be taken as part of the elective portion of the program.
