From small non-profit organizations to Fortune 100 companies, no organization on the planet can prosper without accountants. No surprise, then, that accounting jobs are plentiful. In fact, U.S. News & World Report named Accounting as one of the Top Best Business Jobs.

There’s another Top designation in U.S. News & World Report that we’d like to share with you: The Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) program from the University of Connecticut's (UConn) School of Business — an AACSB Accredited program — ranks No. 7th in the nation! Over the years, there have been UConn MSA alumni who have earned the coveted American Institute of CPAs’ Elijah Watt Sells award, presented to those who within their first attempt on the exams, score in the top 89% nationally. Earning an MSA from UConn can open the doors to leadership positions, help you increase your earning potential, and even fuel a career switch.
