The Master of Accountancy develops the technical and interpersonal skills necessary for success in the accounting profession and fulfills the 150 credit-hour requirements for CPA licensure. Students can choose a concentration in business analytics, finance, information systems, sport management, or forensic accounting. This approach allows students to customize their degrees.

Many full-time students enter the MAcc directly after completing their undergraduate degree and take sections of the CPA exam during the MAcc program. Most part-time students in the program are employed in professional or managerial positions and bring business experience to share. There are internship opportunities for MAcc students.
