GRE/GMAT Required?

Northeastern has a test-optional policy for the 2021-2022 academic year and does not require a GMAT or GRE score to complete an application for admission. Under the new policy, you can decide whether to submit a GMAT or GRE score as part of your admission application. For more information, review our admissions policies.

The MSA/MBA program was a great way to gain concrete, attainable skills that set you up perfectly for a career path in accounting. You earn a combined degree in only 15 months, and gain first-hand experience during accounting busy season through the corporate residency. The program also prepares you for the CPA examination from both a work ethic and technical knowledge point of view.
