Admissions

Students are admitted to the M.S. in Accounting and M.S. in Taxation programs on a rolling basis.  Admission to the Old Westbury M.S. in Accounting program is very selective and follows guidelines established by AACSB International, the leading accrediting body in the discipline.  

The School of Business reviews all applicants holistically.  For this review, applicants must exhibit a proven record in prior undergraduate and/or graduate studies.  GMAT scores and letter of recommendations are also requirements for admission.  

Application Deadline

Applications will be reviewed as a student's application file is completed. Students will be admitted on a rolling basis with classes filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
