  1. Introduction




  1. Background

The Accounting Department offers three degrees: a BS in Business Administration with a concentration in accounting; an MS in Business Administration (MSBA) with an emphasis in accounting; and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) with an emphasis in accounting. Eighteen faculty members teach in the programs that number 1,012 BSBA students, 8 minors, 70 MSBA students with an emphasis in accounting, and 30 students in the MBA with an emphasis in accounting.


  1. Purpose Statement

The Department is requesting to change the title of the MSBA with a concentration in accounting to an MS in Accountancy (MSA) and to change the culminating experience requirement.


  1. Justification

For decades, the College of Business (COB) has offered two state-supported graduate degrees, the Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and the Master of Science in Business Administration (MSBA). The two degrees have much in common including the same admission standards and the same course requirements at Phase I and Phase II. They differed in Phase III (800-level classes). The MBA is the more general degree requiring the student to take courses across the COB. The MSBA allows the student more flexibility and the option to take classes predominately in one area.
Originally, the MSBA included an emphasis from each department in the COB; however, due to lack of enrollment all emphases--except accounting--were removed as an option from the MSBA. The accounting emphasis has strong demand with approximately 70 students enrolled per year. (The MBA continues to offer courses in the emphases that were removed from the MSBA.)
Table 3.1 below provides detailed enrollment data for accounting graduate courses for the last five years. The program is in high demand because many professional accounting positions require a minimum of 24 units of accounting education including the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license and the Internal Revenue Service.
While the MSBA may have been a common degree in the 1960s, it is no longer well recognized by most stakeholders. Since the Department of Accounting is the only department currently offering the MSBA, the department would like to change the title of the degree to the currently recognized MS in Accountancy (MSA), change the culminating experience requirement, and tailor the required courses to the accounting profession. As detailed in Table 3.2 below, eight of the campuses of the CSU currently offer the MS in Accountancy degree. Three campuses (Pomona, San Diego State, and Stanislaus) still offer the MSBA but not with an emphasis in accounting, therefore, San Francisco State is the only CSU campus still offering an MSBA with an emphasis in accounting. A recent article in New Accountant found that 229 of the 462 AACSB accredited schools they surveyed offered an MS in Accountancy (“Changing Careers” by Black and Grace, p. 18, Issue 736, 2010).

  1. Curriculum Proposal




  1. Description

This proposal is to request approval of the degree title change from the MS in Business Administration to a MS in Accountancy and also change the culminating experience requirement. The change in the culminating experience requirement will not impact resources: ACCT 895 Research Project will be replaced by ACCT 890 Research in Contemporary Issues in Accounting.

Phase I—Proficiency Requirements

All three Phase I courses are offered through the College of Extended Learning. Additional fees apply.



Written English Proficiency.
Level One: all incoming M.B.A./M.S.B.A. candidates are required to satisfy the entry-level written English proficiency requirement by a satisfactory score on the GMAT Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA), or a satisfactory score on the Graduate Essay Test (GET), or successful completion of BUS 714 by the end of the second semester in the program. Level Two: demonstration of a higher level of English proficiency than the required entry level. The students should then be able to demonstrate ability to do scholarly writing in the chosen field. This is normally shown by satisfactory completion of the research project or the master's thesis.

Mathematics/Statistics Proficiency. All students entering the graduate program in business must demonstrate a basic proficiency in mathematics and statistics, by passing mathematics and statistics tests given at various times during the year or by successfully completing DS 710 and DS 712, respectively by the end of the second semester in the program. This proficiency must be demonstrated before enrolling in any 800-level courses or by the end of the second semester in the program, whichever comes first.

  1. Advising and Transition Timeline

Appropriate changes will be made to the COB web site. All Accounting Academic Advisors understand what is changing and what is staying the same.

Students will be notified by email of the new degree title and culminating experience requirements with instructions on how to change their degree should they choose to do so. Current students may elect to graduate with the MSBA or may choose the new degree title, if this proposal is approved. After approval, all students in the current MSBA program will be emailed and told of their option to continue in the current MSBA program or change to the MS in Accountancy and the new culminating experience requirement. Each student will also be notified that Department of Accounting academic advisors are available to answer any questions. Every student will be asked to relay his/her decision to the College of Business Graduate office within 30 days of the email. If a student does not respond, a follow up telephone contact will be made. Forty-five days after the email, the SF State Graduate Office will be notified concerning which students wish to switch to the MS in Accountancy (MSA) and which want to stay in the MSBA.

Applicants accepted to the program for fall 2011 and beyond will earn the MSA.

The department sent an email to all students enrolled in the MSBA with an Emphasis in Accounting Program advising them of the proposed revisions (See Appendix A). To date, we have not received any negative responses from students.




  1. Consultations




  1. Department and College

Consultation was conducted with the Department of Accounting Curriculum Committee which unanimously approved the program on April 16, 2010. Consultation was conducted with the COB Graduate Curriculum Committee that represents all COB departments on May 7, 2010.


  1. Library

The proposed revisions will not affect library holdings per Gina Castro, Senior Assistant Librarian:
“I have reviewed the proposal and in light of the fact that the MS program will be taught with existing courses, do not foresee that the proposed change will impact library resources.”



  1. Other Affected Departments/Programs

No departments outside the college will be impacted.


  1. Resource Implications

The revised degree program will not affect:



      • The college’s and department’s level of FTES and FTEF.

      • The numbers and/or types of students expected to enroll in the revised program.

      • The MBA program.

      • Library holdings.




  1. University Requirements




  1. Three-year course rotation

All the required Phase I and Phase II (700-level) courses are also required for MBA students and are offered every semester. For the six required Phase III (800-level) courses, three are offered every semester and the other three are offered once each year with 802 and 804 in the spring and 807 in the fall. ACCT 811 and 831 are electives in the program.

Appendix A

Letter to Students
Dear MSBA Student,

The faculty of the Department of Accounting are submitting a request to change the title of the Master of Science in Business Administration (MSBA) with an emphasis in accounting to a Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA).  Over time the accepted designation for a graduate degree in accounting has become the MSA.  Eight of the campuses of the California State University (CSU) system currently offer the MS in Accountancy degree.  Three campuses (Pomona, San Diego State, and Stanislaus) still offer the MSBA but not with an emphasis in accounting, therefore, San Francisco State is the only CSU campus still offering an MSBA with an emphasis in accounting.  A recent article in New Accountant found that 229 of the 462 AACSB accredited schools they surveyed offered an MS in Accountancy (“Changing Careers” by Black and Grace, p. 18, Issue 736, 2010).

The only change in the course requirements.  It is anticipated that, if approved, the change will not occur before Fall, 2011 so anyone receiving their degree before that date will receive the MSBA.   If you have any questions or concerns about this change please check with a Department of Accounting faculty advisor (Professors Danko, Duke, Braswell, or Hsieh) or email dfranz@sfsu.edu.

Sincerely,

Dr. David Franz

General Information


The College of Business Graduate Programs are located at San Francisco State University Downtown Campus.
835 Market Street, Suite 550
San Francisco, CA 94103
(415) 817-4300
Email: mba@sfsu.edu

The College of Business offers three programs at the graduate level.



M.B.A. This is the flagship graduate business degree program that most students select. Courses are offered exclusively at the Downtown Campus. The program is designed to accommodate needs of both full-time and part-time students. The program allows for limited specialization in any of several functional areas of emphasis.

M.S.A. The MS in Accountancy program allows for substantial specialization in accounting. Courses for this program are primarily offered at the Downtown Campus and some elective courses are offered on the Main Campus for both full-time and part-time students.

Executive M.B.A. This is a fixed curriculum, cohort program for working professionals offered at the Downtown Campus. The General Guidelines later in this section do not apply; instead, refer to the specific EMBA program description that follows that section.

Admission to M.B.A. and M.S.A. Programs


U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and international students are accepted for both fall and spring admission according to the following schedule.

  • Fall semester filing period: October 1 through April 1

  • Spring semester filing period: August 1 through October 1

The above dates are subject to change. Check the Graduate Business Programs website for the latest dates.

Application Requirements


Each applicant to College of Business graduate programs must submit the following to SF State Graduate Studies Office:

  • California State University Application for Graduate or International Admission available at http://www.csumentor.edu plus an application fee of $55.

  • One official transcript from each college attended.

  • The score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Information regarding the exam can be obtained at http://www.mba.com. The deadline to take the GMAT is April 1 for fall admission and October 1 of the prior year for spring admission. The SF State code for reporting GMAT scores is F87-HP-99 for MBA applicants and F87-HP-42 for applicants to the MSA program.

  • A statement of purpose showing how the desired graduate program is related to the applicant’s career goal.

  • TOEFL or IELTS is required for admission by all applicants whose undergraduate work was not done in the English language or a degree was earned outside of the U.S. TOEFL school/department code is 4683. Score reports can be sent to the SF State Graduate Studies office. Applicants who need a student visa must also submit the SF State SEVIS Information Form for International Students.

  • Letters of recommendation and résumé.

  • The California State University Application for Admission may be submitted before the transcripts and GMAT score, but the admission decision is not made until all required materials are received.

Admission Criteria


The College of Business admissions committee reviews an applicant’s overall qualifications and takes the following requirements into consideration:

  1. Completion of a degree equivalent to a four year U.S. bachelor’s degree from a recognized university.

  2. A minimum 3.0 Grade Point Average for the last 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of university coursework completed (average incoming class GPA is 3.3).

  3. GMAT exam including total score, verbal, quantitative, and writing scores (average incoming class total GMAT score is 570). The GMAT Analytical Writing Assessment score must be a minimum of 4.5 which satisfies the Level I writing requirement.

  4. Statement of purpose.

  5. TOEFL score of at least 590/243/96 or IELTS score of at least 7.0, taken within the past two years, is required of all applicants who have earned their undergraduate degree from a country where the official language is not English.

  6. Letters of recommendation (minimum two).

  7. Résumé

The admissions committee also considers evidence of unusual motivation, career maturity, and past success in making admission judgments.

NOTE: Registration in graduate courses in business (700-899) is limited to classified graduate business students and, with second priority, classified graduate students in other academic departments.

Registration in BUS 890 and BUS 895 is limited to classified graduate business students.

Open University students and undergraduate students are allowed to enroll in College of Business graduate courses only under special circumstances with written permission of the Director of Graduate Business Programs. There is an additional fee for Open University students.

Grading Policy

Phase I courses are advised to be taken on the basis of CR/NC grading.


Phase II courses must be taken on a basis of A, B, C, D, F grading. At the instructor's discretion, pluses and minuses may be used. CR/NC grading is not allowed.

Phase III courses must be taken on a basis of A, B, C, D, F grading. At the instructor's discretion, pluses and minuses may be used. CR/NC grading is not allowed.

ACCT 890 must be completed with a B or better.

Grade Deficiency


In the College of Business, if a classified graduate business student drops below a 3.0 grade point average during a semester, s/he will be notified on the grade report by the Registrar's Office that s/he has been placed on probation. If the grade point deficiency is not made up, the student may be declassified effective the beginning of the semester following the first probationary semester. In such status, the student will not be allowed to enroll in graduate level business courses (700 and 800 level).

Any student who becomes declassified under the above provisions and who wishes to appeal such declassification must file a formal appeal within ten days of the date of notice of declassification. Such appeal must be filed with the Director of Graduate Programs of the College of Business.



Generally, the specified course requirements, including stipulated conditions thereto, for the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) may not be changed, substituted for, or altered in any way. Any exceptions to this rule must be requested, in writing, before the course work is attempted and must be approved by the Graduate Curriculum Committee of the College of Business.

General Guidelines for M.B.A. and M.S.A.


All students planning to complete a master's degree through the College of Business must complete on advisement the applicable requirements as specified in Phases I, II, and III below. Phase I represents proficiency requirements which must be satisfied early in the student's study in a graduate program in business. Phase II represents foundation course work which will be planned on advisement in accordance with the guidelines provided below. The number and type of courses prescribed for a student in Phase II will be determined on the basis of the student's degree objective, academic background, professional experience, and planned focus within the selected degree program. Phase III represents the advanced program that all students will be required to complete.

Phase I—Proficiency Requirements


All three Phase I courses are offered through the College of Extended Learning. Additional fees apply.

Written English Proficiency.
Level One: all incoming M.B.A./M.S.A. candidates are required to satisfy the entry-level written English proficiency requirement with a minimum 4.5 on the GMAT Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA), or successful completion of BUS 714 by the end of the second semester in the program. Level Two: demonstration of a higher level of English proficiency than the required entry level. The students should then be able to demonstrate ability to do scholarly writing in the chosen field. This is normally shown by satisfactory completion of the research project or the master's thesis.

Mathematics/Statistics Proficiency. All students entering the graduate program in business must demonstrate a basic proficiency in mathematics and statistics, by passing mathematics and statistics tests given at various times during the year or by successfully completing DS 710 and DS 712, respectively by the end of the second semester in the program. This proficiency must be demonstrated before enrolling in any 800-level courses or by the end of the second semester in the program, whichever comes first.
Phase II – Foundation Requirements
Depending upon a student's previous academic background, the Phase II program may range from 0 to 25 units. The foundation requirements are met by taking the nine business foundation courses or by waivers of individual courses based on previous equivalent course work. Each equivalency is determined by course content, grade received, elapsed time since work was completed and supporting experience.
