"Earning my Masters Degree in Accountancy immediately following the undergraduate program has been integral in the current competitive job market as it has set myself apart from the crowds of candidates applying for similar positions. The Masters program details their curriculum to reflect the updated educational requirements imposed in order to obtain your CPA license. Since obtaining my MSA Degree at CSULB I have passed all four CPA examinations and have been hired full time at Holthouse Carlin & Van Tright LLP, where I have been able to apply the technical knowledge learned in the classroom, as well as the real life application obtained through case studies with clients. I am continually expanding my pool of knowledge and professional network, which would not be possible without the MSA program. Go Beach!"
The Accountancy Fast Track Masters program is now available to current CSULB undergrad students seeking a career in public accountancy. With this new program, CSU Long Beach students now have the fastest possible path to meeting the 150-hour CPA licensure requirements, while earning both BSBA and MSA degrees in five years or less (three years for incoming transfer students).
