As an MSA student, you’ll have the flexibility to complete courses through our convenient NetPlus! format.

The classroom sessions blend online course content with student and faculty interactions. More info on NetPlus! can be found here.
Note: Beginning Fall 2016, fall and winter terms will be 15 weeks long with residencies on 3rd and 11th Fridays/Saturdays. Spring and summer terms will be 7 weeks long with residencies on 2nd and 6th Fridays/Saturdays.
Experienced, tested, and respected experts in their field, MSA faculty bring practical working knowledge into the online and traditional classroom. Highly accessible both online and in person, MSA faculty are committed to your success as a student and as a professional. All full-time MSA faculty are also CPAs.
UM-Flint’s School of Management offers students the opportunity to also earn their MBA by double counting up to 15 credits from the MSA. The advantage to the student is an MBA degree takes less credits to complete, saving time and money.
