Smith College Campus Center
Interested in a Career in Accounting & Business? Didn’t study Accounting? The MS in Accounting/MBA is a full-time, 15 month program that begins each year in late May. Students complete a three-month paid residency from January - March at one of the partner accounting firms. Firm representatives are impressed by the candidates that are recruited into the program as they come from competitive schools, have strong liberal arts backgrounds, and excellent academic portfolios. Liberal Arts/non-business majors tend to have strong interpersonal and communication skills, making them valuable assets to an engagement team. The MSA/MBA provides the technical and functional specialization that help round out the liberal arts education. As a result, there is virtually 100% job placement upon graduation.

The decision to attend a graduate or professional school and when to attend are questions with answers which are unique for each individual. Use these pages to advise and assist you when deciding upon you own path.
Deciding to Apply
There is no “timeline” of when or if one is supposed to attend a post-Smith education. For many, the reason to attend a graduate program is to satisfy a personal journey:
- it is a subject that one purely wants to study in depth as a scholar, or
- it is needed for employment or advancement in a particular career field.
When your reason to attend a graduate program has motivated you, begin to evaluate your credentials and explore the various graduate programs. Consult with others who can assist you in your endeavor:
- Speak with faculty who can advise you on programs in your field of interest
- Meet with a Lazarus Center advisor to help coordinate the logistics of your application
- Network with Smith alums and other professionals in the field who can share their personal experiences
- Contact admission representatives of your selected graduate programs about their programs.
Your decision to attend graduate school should be carefully planned and strategically crafted.
