On behalf of the Provost and the OSU Faculty Senate, I am pleased to announce the following new degree program:
Master of Business Administration and Accountancy (MBAA)
The Master of Business Administration and Accountancy (MBAA) graduate degree program at Oregon State University has been designed to create a seamless and integrated program that will allow accounting students to receive an undergraduate degree and a master’s degree during their five years of university study required to become a CPA. To be licensed as a Certified Public Accountant in the State of Oregon, a student is required to complete a university degree and the equivalent of five years of higher education course work (225 quarter credits). Given the minimum coursework requirement of five years to enter the public accounting profession, this graduate degree program provides an opportunity to enhance the education of Oregon State University’s students in a manner that will enrich all stages of their careers. The MBAA has also been designed to accommodate post-baccalaureate students wishing to prepare for accounting careers, and to provide an opportunity for MBA students to specialize in accounting. The MBAA is unique among Oregon Colleges and Universities.
This degree program was approved on February 2, 2012 and will be available fall quarter, 2012.
