Choose from three concentrations (Click to view courses and schedules):

• Private accounting
• Forensic accounting

Bay Path's MS in Accounting is a flexible 30 credit program. It can be completed in 8, 12, or 24 months. Classes start every April, May, July, September, and November.

If you begin in April or May you can complete your degree by December.  This accelerated program allows students to focus on completing the 150 credit requirement for the CPA exam.  This gives students the option to finish just in time to be hired for the busy season in January. We have had many students benefit from our accelerated schedule. It has been extremely beneficial to those who go on to work for “The Big 4” accounting firms. 

*Please note: Starting in May with December degree completion is highly accelerated. Approval from the program director is required.

The biggest advantage: no classes are held between January and April. This is typically the “Busy Season” for accountants. That way you can adjust your life, work and professional goals. Once April has passed, the program picks up again and you continue in sequence.
