Admissions

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.

Prerequisites

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 2050 Introduction to Financial Reporting;
    • ACCT 3001 Introduction to Management Accounting;
    • ACCT 5101 Intermediate Accounting 1;
    • FINA 3001 Finance Fundamentals**

*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 B or better before taking MAcc courses.

Considerations

The following factors are considered when looking at applications:

  • Academic record
  • Test scores (GMAT), required unless candidates met waiver qualifications
  • Letters of recommendations

Application Deadlines

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