Master of Accountancy

The Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina offers the Master of Accountancy (MACC) degree to people like you who are looking at a graduate school and beyond.

Small class sizes, an impressive record of job placement for graduates, and solid preparation for the CPA exam are just a few of the benefits to consider. As a part of the University of South Carolina, the Moore School offers you resources and opportunities that can’t be matched at most other institutions. Our MACC program, one of the largest and most respected in the region, produces graduates who are in high demand and recruited by regional, national, and international accounting firms.

Program

The Master of Accountancy (MACC) program is a natural extension of study for students who have completed an undergraduate degree in accounting. However, it is open to anyone who satisfies the school's admission standards regardless of their undergraduate major. The MACC program provides the opportunity to specialize in a particular field of accounting, complete technical competency for professional examinations while in school, and meet the specific educational requirements to qualify for the CPA designation in some states. Students who have not completed an undergraduate degree in accounting from an accredited college or university may need to take prerequisite courses as well as the program courses.

The best opportunity to learn more about the MACC program is the MACC Showcase to be held on Friday, October 4th, 2013. The event will include an information session with program details, a faculty panel, and a current students and alumni panel. Lunch will be provided. Please register and bring your classmates with you!

CRITERIA FOR ADMISSION

Undergraduate performance

An earned undergraduate degree from an accredited institution is required to be considered for admission to the MACC program. A degree in accounting is not required; however, strongly encouraged. Those who do not have a degree in accounting may be considered and, if accepted, will take prerequisite coursework before starting the accounting core curriculum. The average undergraduate grade point average (GPA) is a 3.5. Graduate coursework and/or (whether degree has been earned or not) will also be taken into consideration. Transcripts from all institutions attended must be submitted to the Darla Moore School of Business.

GMAT

Applicants must provide a valid (five years or less) Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) score to be considered for admission to the MACC program. The GMAT is comprised of verbal, qualitative, and analytical sections.

Transcripts

If your college or university offers PDF delivery of transcripts, please provide them with the director of admissions contact information to make sure the transcripts are considered official. Transcripts sent to individuals, other than the director of admissions, may not be considered official.
