1 Prairie View A&M University Graduate Programs in Business College of Business Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) Munir Quddus, Ph.D. Dean, College of Business Lawrence McNeil, Ph.D. Director, Graduate Programs in Business Phone (936) Fax (936) Producing PRODUCTIVE PEOPLE is the goal of Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU). This goal is the foundation of graduate programs in business in the College of Business. The curriculum and objectives of the graduate business programs are based on the rich traditions and cultural heritage that exist at PVAMU. Today, businesses need leaders who are able to make decisions based on critical thinking, who can express their ideas verbally and in writing, and are effective as an individual contributor or on a team. These expectations are the cornerstone of the Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) degree program in business in the College of Business. PVAMU and the College of Business are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS COC) and the College of Business is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Another advantage of the graduate programs in business at PVAMU is that they are designed for the working adult. Currently, the business graduate student is an average 29 years of age and has an average of 2.5 years of experience in business. The commitment to the working adult is not taken lightly and every effort is made to accommodate the needs of our working students. For example, all classes are in the evening or on Saturday. Also, classes are conducted at the Northwest Houston Center located in northwest Houston with some courses offered online. The MSA degree is designed to provide advanced training in accounting to prepare accounting professionals for careers in public, private, and governmental accounting. The objective of the program is to prepare graduates to meet the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy prerequisites for the Uniform CPA Examination.
