The Master of Accountancy
A prestigious program preparing students for successful professional careers
The Master of Accountancy degree program is designed for students whose primary career interests are accounting and assurance services. The program prepares students for professional careers in these fields by focusing on the development of research, cognitive thinking, interpersonal and communication skills.
In conjunction with the prerequisite undergraduate accounting coursework, the Master of Accountancy program provides graduates with the accounting courses required to sit for the CPA exam. The program provides graduates with the necessary development of key skills and attributes to facilitate their growth as accounting professionals.
Students must take a minimum of 30 hours of graduate courses, including a minimum of 21 hours of accounting courses. Up to nine elective hours, as approved by an advisor, may be chosen from 500-level courses and must be approved by the coordinator of the MAcc program. Students cannot receive graduate credit for a course if they have taken an equivalent course at the undergraduate level. Another accounting course should be substituted with the approval of the coordinator of the MAcc program.
Students are encouraged to take electives in disciplines such as:
- Data Mining
- Business Analytics
- Real Estate
However, students are free to choose their own elective tracks.
