"As an undergraduate student in Suffolk's Accounting program, I quickly saw the value of the 4+1 and Fast Track options. With the Fast Track Program, I was able to take two graduate courses during my senior year. Then I enrolled in the 4+1 and was able to waive many of the classes for the MSA. That meant I completed my MSA in 9 months."
