Master of Accountancy

The MAcc program represents one of the top accounting programs in the nation. With a unique course structure, students are led through a series of courses designed to help prepare them for the Certified Public Accountancy (CPA) exam. The program can be completed in just one year*  and requires taking two, eight-week courses over the fall, spring and summer sessions. This structure has resulted in highly prepared students and highly successful pass rates on the exam - 88 percent based on most recent data. This is nearly double the national average pass rate.

The program is also one of only 175 business schools in the world to hold both a business and accounting accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Learn more
