Lee Business School


 The Lee Business School offers four graduate programs. The Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) provides professional preparation for students wishing to pursue careers in taxation, public accounting, managerial or corporate accounting, and government. The MSA also provides the necessary course work for sitting for the CPA exam in Nevada and other 150-hour jurisdictions.

The Master of Science in Management Information Systems (MS MIS) prepares graduates for professional and managerial careers in information technology (IT). MIS students earn competency in IT, embedded in a business context that provides them with well-rounded preparation for occupations in high demand.

The M.A. in Economics focuses on applied and empirical economics and also provides students with a strong foundation for further graduate study at the Ph.D. level. The core of the program includes the basic theory of microeconomics, macroeconomics, as well as math for economists. To develop empirical skills, students must take two courses that use statistical analysis to examine interesting economic problems.

The largest graduate program in the college, the MBA, is designed to prepare the individual to meet the challenges of rapid change in business and in society through emphasis on managerial concepts and analytical reasoning. The particular focus on theory and practice produces special qualities in the UNLV MBA graduate. By studying managerial theory and economic principles, the student acquires the capacity for assuming responsibility in a wide variety of roles within an organization.
