The master of accountancy (M.Acc.) degree is a two-year (54-credit) program designed for students with a bachelor degree in any major. Students build core accounting competencies in the first academic year and are then encouraged to pursue a paid internship during the summer between the first and second academic years. Students enhance their studies in the second academic year with advanced courses in accounting and other business disciplines. The degree helps students develop strong technical and professional accounting skills that qualify them to sit for the CPA exam. Careers as professional accountants in public accounting, financial institutions, government, industry, or nonprofit organizations are possible upon graduation.
