Curriculum


Each student's program of study must be approved by his or her graduate advisor. The program of study consists of three parts following completion of all admission prerequisites:

  1. Foundation Courses (up to 18 semester hours): For students not having completed appropriate courses in the business disciplines within a reasonable time prior to admission, course work will be determined after evaluation of prior courses completed in the area and grades received in those courses, the time since completion of the prior course work, and other evidence of currency of their business knowledge. Determinations of deficiencies made by the program director are final. An undergraduate business degree from SIUE, or the equivalent, completed within 6 years prior to admission to the MSA program normally will satisfy the foundation course requirements. The foundation courses constituting the core areas of business are: FIN 513, MGMT 514, CMIS 515, MKTG 516, and PROD 519.

  2. Program Courses (9 hours): ACCT 510, 580 (taken in the last semester of study), and one of the following courses: ACCT 531, 541, 561.

  3. Elective Courses (21 hours; the same course may not be used to meet both the program course and elective course requirements):

    a) Accounting Electives (6 to 12 hours; at least 3 hours in courses numbered above 530): ACCT 401, 431, 531, 541, 550, 551, 553, 556, 557, 561, 565, 567, 581, 597, 598.

    (b) Other Electives (9 to 15 hours; no more than 9 hours outside the School of Business): CMIS 464, 468, 472, 520, 550, 551; ECON 415, 417, 445, 450, 461, 514, 515, 528, 535, 543, 545, 554, 561; FIN 440, 450, 541, 542, 543, 550; MGMT 551, 553, 561, 575, 580; MBA 531, 532, 533, 534; additional courses with the approval of the program director (may include courses outside the School of Business).
