The Combined Bachelor's + Master's degree programs allow students to complete 12 graduate credit hours while still undergraduates. These 12 graduate credit hours will count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
The Combined BSB + MSAA Program allows accountancy majors to complete a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Science in Audit and Advisory Services (MSAA) degree in as few as five years.
The MSAA provides students with advanced auditing skills and prepares them to succeed as accountants at both public accounting firms and corporate internal audit departments. Students receive hands-on training with audit tools, visualization techniques and data analytics. The program also uses forensic accounting to prepare students to understand what questions to ask of financial data and how to interpret the findings. Students graduate with a set of integrated competencies that are highly valued by the accounting profession.
In this program, students will take three graduate classes during their senior year. These three classes will count toward both the bachelor’s degree and master’s degree as indicated below.
