NYU Stern welcomed the incoming class of Master of Science in Accounting students to campus at orientation on August 29.

Over the next year, students will earn their degree and complete the prerequisite 150-credit-hour education requirement needed for New York State’s Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certification.

Orientation program highlights included:
  • A welcome from Dean of Students Conor Grennan
  • An industry panel moderated by Professor Alex Dontoh, Academic Director, Master of Science in Accounting, and featuring Danielle Messineo, Recruiter, Federal Bureau of Investigation; Matthew Rutter, Senior Manager, Fraud Investigation and Disputes Services, EY; Chris Spiegelman, MD AIF practice lead and Greenwich Managing Partner, Anderesen Tax; Mark Tavel, Audit Manager, Mazars; and Sarah Turner, Director Capital Markets and Account Advisory Services, PwC
  • Networking reception with accounting firms and representative staff from Deloitte, EY, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Mazars, PwC, National Futures Association, WithumSmith + Brown, and more.
Stern’s MS in Accounting enables college graduates with a business or accounting major to satisfy the course requirements for New York State’s CPA certification. Because of New York State’s stringent standards and reciprocity with other states’ certification, graduates of this program will be well-prepared to meet CPA requirements in other states such as California, Texas, and Florida. The MS in Accounting provides a thorough foundation for careers in accounting, including attestation and assurance services, as well as taxation and forensic accounting.
