Academics

The Carlson School Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program prepares students to be successful accounting, tax, or finance professionals in a dynamic, global business environment.  The MAcc program provides an option for accounting students to meet the required 150 semester hours or for finance majors and international students the necessary courses to sit for the CPA examination in Minnesota.

The MAcc enables each student to acquire the comprehensive accounting, finance, taxation, and business skills needed to be successful by providing 60 percent of its courses as electives. The MAcc program offers a 30-credit program in a full or part-time format with a broad selection of elective courses in:

  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Taxation
  • Supply Chain and Operations Management
  • Information Systems
  • Marketing

In addition, the MAcc offers a “tax track” for students interested in a career in tax. If students return for an MBT, some of these courses may be applied to their MBT degree. The MAcc offers a winter or summer internship for its students in the business community's top accounting firms and corporations.
