The MAcc program provides a relevant and rigorous academic experience.  MAcc students with an undergraduate degree in accounting or finance complete a minimum of 30 semester credits.  Students with a bachelor's degree in a field other than accounting or finance complete a minimum of 46 semester credits.  Students select elective courses from our MAcc, Master of Business Taxation (MBT), and MBA programs.

The curriculum for the 30 credit requirement includes three required accounting courses for 12 semester credits.  The remaining 18 credits are elective courses.

The curriculum for the 46 credit requirement includes eight required accounting courses for 28 semester credits.  The remaining 18 credits are elective courses.

Students can complete the program as a full or part-time student by taking either day or evening classes. All required classes and MBT and MBA elective classes are offered in the evening or on Saturdays.

Students can begin the MAcc program in summer, fall, or spring semester. Full-time students typically take an average of 14-16 credits and complete the 30 credit requirement in two semesters and the 46 credit requirement in three semesters. Students completing the program part-time generally complete the program in four to six semesters.
