Bridging the Skills Gap

The gap between the skills accountants need and the skills traditional accounting programs actually teach has been widening. New tools and techniques for analyzing the ever-growing mountain of data are arriving daily, and only those prepared with the right tools will reach the summit. The Accounting and Analytics master’s program presents an opportunity to develop the expertise necessary to stay on the leading edge in the data-intensive worlds of accounting, auditing and financial reporting.  

Technology and a Stevens education are inextricably linked. An Accounting and Analytics master’s degree from Stevens leverages the university’s mission as a student-centric institution focused on technology to teach students advanced skills in data analysis. Stevens' STEM-designated Accounting and Analytics master's degree will: 

  • Deepen existing knowledge of accounting, auditing and financial reporting. 

  • Give students the analytic skills to make sound business decisions related to accounting and financial reporting. 

  • Better equip students with the traits that are quickly becoming “must-haves” for leading accounting and auditing firms.
