Tuition fees

Contact the school for information regarding tuition fees. 


We understand real-life work experience is essential to success outside of the classroom. Learning in a Professional Environment (LIPE) allows you to earn up to three hours of graduate credit for work experience you obtain while earning your MS in Accounting.

Learning in a Professional Environment is a required course for international students who secure an internship, and we highly recommend it for those students who come to the MSA Program without previous work experience in accounting. LIPE provides a way to put accounting skills into practice while developing professional acumen.
