Accountancy Combined Undergradate and Graduate Program, B.S.B.A./M.S. or B.S.B.A/M.B.A.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: List of Majors, Minors, Certificates and Special Programs

These are five year programs that allow students to enroll in graduate studies during their senior year of undergraduate coursework.  Many students with advanced placement credit or that enroll in summer courses or take 18-hour course loads complete these programs in less than five years.  Completion of a combined program enables a student to earn a BSBA in Accounting and either an M.S. in Accountancy (MSA) or an MBA while satisfying the 150-hour requirement to be eligible to take the CPA exam.  Students are allowed to seek admission to the MSA or the MBA program when they have one year remaining to complete their BSBA in Accounting.  Those accepted may begin taking a limited number of graduate courses while completing their undergraduate degree.  (Note: either of these programs will allow students to meet the requirements to sit for the CPA exam in the state of Ohio.  Students planning to practice in other states should become familiar with the requirements in that state)

Requirements:


  • Same as the requirements for Accounting, B.S.B.A.  except that six hours of MS or MBA credit may be taken in the senior year under the undergraduate tuition which covers up to 18 credit hours of classes in an academic term.
  • Same as requirements for all MS and MBA students.
  • The Nine credit hours of graduate electives required in the MBA program may include one or more Masters in Accountancy (MACC) courses with permission of the MSA director or Chair of the Department of Accountancy.

B.S.B.A. Accounting and MS or MBA


Students that plan to pursue a joint B.S.B.A. and MS or MBA degree should work with their academic advisor to develop a plan for completion of both degrees.  Students are also encouraged to meet with the Department Chair, the Director of the MS in Accountancy program or the MBA office for assistance in designing their program of study.
