About Our Program

The Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree allows students to continue their specialized studies of the discipline. Many students who earn their MAcc degree seek careers as Certified Public Accountants (CPAs). The 30-hour degree has a curriculum that comprises subject matter from the CPA examination. Many students take the CPA exam while completing the requirements for the MAcc degree. After completion of the program, it is common for students to then seek licensure. Each state’s requirements are different to take the exam and to earn a license. Visit the American Institute of CPAs website at www.aicpa.org for information on the requirements for each state. Students may also pursue studies in the forensic field at the master’s level. Our program offers courses in SAP® systems, one of the hottest new fields for business professionals.
