The Master of Accountancy program prepares you to be a successful accounting, tax, or finance professional in a dynamic, global business environment. We look for students who have a strong academic and diverse background with an interest in the accounting profession. Applicants do not need to have an accounting undergraduate degree to apply to the program.


Candidates must have:

  • An undergraduate degree (in any field) with a GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or higher*
  • Completed or in the process of completing these courses (or equivalent)**:
    • ACCT 2051 (formerly ACCT 2050) Introduction to Financial Reporting;
    • ACCT 3001 Introduction to Management Accounting;
    • ACCT 5101 Intermediate Accounting 1

*Students may apply during their senior year, but must complete the baccalaureate degree prior to entering the MAcc program.

**We consider and admit applicants before they have taken all of these courses, but they must complete them with a C or better before taking MAcc courses.


The following factors are considered when looking at applications:

  • Academic record
  • Personal statement
  • Letters of Recommendations
  • English Language Test (if applicable)

Application Deadlines

  • Fall start: February 1 priority, followed by rolling admission
