MSA Fall Program

The BC MSA Program offers a flexible curriculum that is tailored to your academic background. Courses focus on concepts that can be practically applied to professional accounting practice, and you learn from an accomplished faculty possessing valuable experience in the industry.

Each student receives a personilzed course worksheet upon entering the Program that lists the specific courses you need to take to fulfill the MSA degree. Completion of the Program requires a minimum of ten course (30 credit hours) and at least six accounting classes, including the three core MSA courses.

As an accounting major, you may begin the MSA program in either June or September, and matriculation options remain flexible for students who accept an offer with a firm prior to the start of the Program. Typically, students complete their studies over two academic semesters.
