The Master of Accountancy is a professional degree designed to prepare students for public accounting and to provide them with the 150 credit hours of classroom and clinical hours required by most places in the United States before taking the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination.

The curriculum may consist only of graduate accounting courses or may consist of a combination of graduate accounting courses, management, tax, leadership, and other business electives. The program is designed not only to prepare students for the CPA examination but also to provide a strong knowledge of accounting principles and business applications.

Schools offer one and two-year programs with tuition starting at $20,000 USD per academic year, although partial merit scholarships are available for high performing international students based on IELTS (6.5+) and TOEFL (90+) exam scores as well as CGPA and GRE (300+) or GMAT (550+) exam scores.

Many Master of Accountancy programs incorporate training and practical experience, in the form of research projects, presentations, and OPT and CPT opportunities.
