One year accounting masters

If a student is planning to go for an MBA in finance or a PhD in data science, is it any advantage to take two more semesters at undergrad college to get a masters in accounting?

    No. Those two more semesters are better used post grad to get a job which is finance-adjacent or data science adjacent to confirm that this is the right path forward.

    Can't see what advantage the accounting brings to the table.

    Typically people in the one year MS in Accounting programs are there to get the additional 30 credits needed to become a CPA ( 150 credits are needed to become a CPA and a typical bachelor's degree is around 120 credits.).

    All top MBA programs require at least 2 years of work experience.

    Consider the University of Mississippi masters degree in accounting & data analytics as it seems to align with your interests. Also, offered at 7 or 8 other universities including Villanova & Baylor.

    The University of Mississippi, Villanova, Ohio State, Baylor, Univ. of Southern California (USC), Virginia Tech, Arizona State University (ASU), University of Georgia, & the University of Missouri all offer the same masters program in Accounting & Data Analytics.

    Ole Miss was the first to offer this masters degree.
