The Carlson Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program provides a graduate degree in accounting as an option for students to meet the required 150 semester hours of education to be certified in the State of Minnesota and to deliver a multi-discipline management program in accounting. It also provides finance majors and international students the necessary courses to sit for the CPA examination in Minnesota.
The mission of the MAcc program is to prepare students to be successful accounting, tax, or finance professionals in a dynamic, global business environment. To achieve this mission, the Carlson MAcc enables each student to acquire the comprehensive accounting, finance, taxation, and business skills he or she needs by providing 60 percent of its courses as electives. The MAcc program offers a 30-credit program with a broad selection of elective courses in:
- Supply Chain and Operations Management
- Information Systems
In addition, the MAcc offers a “tax track” for students interested in a career in tax. The MAcc offers 20 credits of elective tax courses from the Masters of Business Taxation (MBT) program. If students return for an MBT, some of these courses may be applied to their MBT degree.
Finally, the MAcc offers a winter or summer internship for its students.
Upon completion, you will receive a master's of accountancy from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. The MAcc program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
