For Purdue undergraduates interested in pursuing a career in accounting, the Master of Science in Accounting Pathway Program offers an optimal route to completing the 150 hours of college credit work required to sit for the CPA exam. With conditional admission starting as early as sophomore year, eligible students can streamline their undergraduate experience and transition seamlessly into a ten-month master's program.
The GMAT is not required for Pathway students. You may submit your application without uploading test scores.
Successful applicants will be allowed to directly matriculate into the MS Accounting program — in either the spring or fall intake — after completing a minimum of 120 undergraduate hours and receiving a baccalaureate degree with a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher.
We also have availability to meet with you virtually to discuss how your goals align with our curriculum, community, student experiences, and outcomes to determine if Purdue is the right fit for you!
