    Accounting is a part of every business in every country. Accounting is the universal language of business.

    International students will benefit from learning US GAAP, accounting, and business intelligence which will be an asset to their future employers in the US or their home countries.

    I had my bachelor's degree from MSU in accounting and now pursuing my MBA here too. Accounting department is so welcoming and full with professors who are willing to help you anytime. In my opinion. accounting courses are generally requires lot of studying and hard work because the nature of the concept. Tuition is higher for international students compare to the in-state student however there are a scholarship opportunities too. However, compare the overall cost to the knowledge I got from the program I would say that tuition is fair.

    It is a great location for Accounting because the top firms are not far from you. Accounting society hosts meeting every week during the semester. I participate in weekly meetings to gain expertise from guest speakers and meet one-on-one with these experts to ask specific and targeted questions. I've met some great professors who've given me advice and helped me reach my goals.
