The M.S. in Accounting education program prepares you for your career, while providing a framework of enhanced complementary skills of technical abilities, global acumen, relationships, and business acuity to develop the ability to make sound judgements and quick decisions to assist in building leaders who will build the future.

Our curriculum creates students who are ethically responsible leaders with strong critical thinking and communication skills. 

Nearly 100% of our MSA participants receive accountancy related internships, with outcomes most often resulting in one or more professional career employment offers.

Siena’s M.S. program in accounting is designed for students who have earned an undergraduate degree in accounting from an AACSB accredited institution and wish to sit for the New York state CPA exam. 


Siena College is able to offer a limited number of spaces to students admitted to the program.


Internships represent an essential component of the program and serve many students as an entry to full-time employment.
