Accounting (M.S.A.C.)

Accounting professionals have a vast number of career paths and industries to choose from, which means our graduates enjoy high employment rates and job security.

Geared toward graduates without a bachelor's degree in accounting, Seton Hall's program prepares you for a successful career and satisfies the educational credits required to sit for the CPA exam in New Jersey, New York and most other states.

Many of the biggest firms and best-known agencies turn to our program for recruiting at on-campus events, including our annual "Meet the Firms Night."

Full-time students can complete their coursework in just 12 months; part-time students typically finish our program in two years.
