WSU TO HOLD VIRTUAL INFO SESSION FOR ACCOUNTING GRADUATE PROGRAM

The College of Graduate and Continuing Education (CGCE) at Westfield State University will host a virtual information session for the Master of Science in accounting (MSA) program at 6 p.m. Sept. 29 via Zoom.

The graduate program is designed to foster leadership skills and prepare students for successful careers in public and private accounting. It allows students to complete the additional 30-credit hours necessary to fulfill the educational requirements for the Certified Public Accountancy (CPA) license in Massachusetts and several other states.  

The program offers a foundation curriculum for students who have a business background but lack the necessary coursework in accounting, to complete a series of pre-requisite courses as part of the master’s program. This curriculum can be completed entirely online with courses offered on a rotating basis (students can also take courses in person). The advanced curriculum is for students with an undergraduate major or concentration in accounting. It is comprised of 10 courses (the majority are offered in a hybrid format and certain courses are 100 percent online) that can be completed in only two semesters. The MSA program offers students flexibility and affordability to achieve a greater degree of sophistication in accounting and auditing.  

Information session attendees will have an opportunity to speak with faculty and members of the Outreach Team about the program and its application process. The $50 application fee will be waived for all attendees. To RSVP, visit www.GoBackNow.com. For more information, call 413-572-8020 or email wsucgce@westfield.ma.edu.
