    ISU Accounting

    Quick question for anyone who knows....how many years total would it take to get a masters in accounting at ISU? A friend of mine was curious....any accounting majors out there?

    Someone told me you could do it in four years total (undergrad and masters), I didn't believe it. Is that possible?

    Wow, that seems pretty fast. Maybe if your took a full load of summer classes and 19 credits each semester. As well as not having much of a life outside of class and studying.

    That's what I was thinking.....however, I was unable to refute the claim (though I let my friend know I was very skeptical) because I know little to nothing about accounting.

    Re: ISU Accounting

    152.5 credits for a Masters. 122.5 for a Bachelors. You start on a 5 year plan. but it's very possible to do in 4 years. Just have to take 30 credits over 4 summers, which is nothing, especially if you transfer in a bunch.

    (for the record, I am a MAcc at ISU )

    Re: ISU Accounting

    You can get an MBA with an ME degree in about 5 years, so I would assume that would be the same if not quicker for an accounting major. Maybe that is what they are talking about.

    My wife got her MBA and passed her CPA in 5 years, doing it any faster than that would require having no social life at all.

    I don't know about Christensen, but Whittle is definitely not one of my favorite professors. I'd try Christensen.
