Master of Accountancy (M.ACC) Kansas State University Manhattan Campus
The M.ACC curriculum is a 30-credit-hour program of study offered through the Accounting graduate program that may be completed in two regular semesters and a summer term or in three semesters. Students without prior or complete business and accounting training must acquire basic competency in the following business core foundation areas: accounting, statistics, management information systems, economics, finance, marketing, and management. These competencies may be acquired through specified business core foundation course work. The specific number of business core foundation courses required depends on the applicant’s prior academic work. The basic competency course work may be taken after admission to the MAcc program, but certain business core foundation courses must be completed prior to taking MAcc courses that are in the same subject or that otherwise require a knowledge of the business core foundation material.
The objective of the master of accountancy program is to provide candidates with a greater breadth and depth in accounting than is possible in the baccalaureate or master of business administration program in preparation for careers as professional accountants in financial institutions, government, industry, nonprofit organizations, and public practice.
