About the Program 

What sets Medaille’s accounting degree in Buffalo apart? 

  • Small classes and one-on-one mentorship with professors in and out of the classroom 
  • Two required internships
  • Faculty with real work experience in the field
  • The student-run Medaille Accounting Club, which meets for workshops and invites professional speakers to lecture
  • The Commons Café in the Main Building is run entirely by Medaille accounting and business students, giving you the opportunity for a hands-on, full responsibility business experience
  • DECA, international business association offering access to internships, scholarships, networking and professional conferences
  • ENACTUS, which hosts national competitions and supports international entrepreneurial projects
  • When the fifth year in the MSA program is completed, students are qualified to sit for the CPA exam.
