NOTE: If an M.S.A. student took ACCT 43014, 43020, 43033, or 43034 as a Kent State accounting undergraduate (or took comparable classes in another accounting undergraduate program), the normally required comparable graduate course (ACCT 53014, 53020, 53033 and 53034) will not be required in the M.S. program. Rather, the student will substitute an additional accounting elective for each such course.

*During the admission evaluation, some or all of the above courses might be waived by the M.S.A. coordinator depending on the related undergraduate courses the student has previously taken. The student would then choose other non-accounting graduate business courses to make up the required 6 hours of non-accounting graduate business courses.
