Back Program Website | Info Sheet
The School of Accounting offers three degree programs in accounting: (1) BS in Business Administration with a major in accounting, (2) MS in accounting and (3) PhD in business administration with emphasis in accounting.

The common objective of the BS and MS in accounting programs is to educate students to commence and continue to develop in a wide range of professional accounting careers. The specific objective of the BS in accounting program is to provide basic conceptual and business knowledge as a foundation for accounting career development; the objective of the MS in accounting is to provide candidates with a greater breadth and depth in accounting than is possible in the BS program, in order to prepare graduates for careers as professional accountants in financial institutions, industry, non-business organizations and public practice.

Students who are considering a professional accounting career should have above-average aptitudes in ­mathematics and English, disciplined work habits, an interest in working with people and an attitude of service.

Students who have the objective of sitting for the CPA exam in Oklahoma must have a BS and are required to complete 150 semester hours consisting of 76 upper-division hours, 30 hours of accounting above introductory accounting (including 3 hours of external auditing), and nine upper-division hours from other business related areas. The Professional Program in Accounting (PPA) is especially designed to enable students to become CPA eligible. The PPA allows students to complete the requirement of 150 hours of education and receive a BS and MS in accounting. The MS in accounting earned at Oklahoma State University satisfies educational requirements for CPA candidates in all jurisdictions of the United States.

Accreditation. The School of Accounting is separately and fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).
