Class Registration

Unlike your undergraduate experience, Mary Knapp will register you for your MSA courses.  The schedule will be created based on how many semesters you will be attending, as well as the track of choice.  Thirty hours of graduate work are required to graduate from the MSA Program.  Fall registration will occur between May-June 2019, at which time Mary Knapp will communicate with you via email or phone to discuss your schedule, which track you will be pursuing (Audit/Assurance, Tax, or Financial Transaction Services) and if you will be doing a 2 or 3-semester program.

2019-20 MSA Curriculum will be posted soon

2-Semester Option

If you choose the 2-semester option, you will take 15 credits in the Fall and 15 credits in the Spring.

You will take a combination of core and track related courses, as well as some electives in both semesters, depending on your track of choice.

NOTE: If you choose Financial Transaction Services (FTS) as your track of choice and you have not taken Intermediate Finance (FIN 632), it is required that you take this class at Wake Forest University prior to the start of classes to waive the prerequisite for FIN 5110.  FIN 632 will be held late July 29 to August 16, 2019.  If you do not attend all dates of this class, you cannot choose FTS as your track.  You will receive more details during your academic advising session.

3-Semester Option

If you choose the 3-semester option, you plan on interviewing for a winter internship in the Spring.

You will take a combination of core and track related courses, as well as some electives, depending on your track of choice.

Students that have not already taken Accounting Information Systems and/or Audit will take these classes during Fall 2019 semester (these courses count towards your graduate accounting credits).

Students that have not already taken Managerial Accounting will take this course during Spring 2020 (this class does not count towards your graduate credits).
