CBA Learning Goals

Program learning goals are developed and determined by CBA Undergraduate Program Committee (UPC) and CBA Graduate Program Committee (GPC). Learning goals are constantly reviewed by UPC and GPC to assure that they are consistent with the school’s mission, expected outcomes, and strategies. Learning goals should reflect the currency of knowledge and the expectations of stake holders.

MSA Program Goals

 The overall goal of the CSULB Department of Accountancy’s Master of Science in Accountancy Program is to prepare students to pursue professional careers in accounting at all levels within corporations, consultancies, public accounting firms, non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies.  Pursuant to State of California regulation SB 819, anyone taking the California Certified Public Accounting (CPA) examination is required to have at least 150 units of coursework in Accounting and related areas from an accredited institution to fulfill the education-related licensing requirements of being recognized as a CPA, a critical professional milestone. The Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) is designed to provide the additional 30 units (beyond the 120 units earned in the BS- Accountancy program) that address this mandate.
