The Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) program is in response to new developments in the accounting and business worlds. Significant changes in the regulatory climate, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, have increased the need for graduate-level education. The 150-credit hour education requirement established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) also has significantly increased the demand for graduate education in accounting.
“U.S. News and World Report has ranked Sacramento State’s online Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) program 75th in the nation out of 236 similar programs. It’s also ranked second among the 23 California State University campuses.”
