College of Business Administration

The MAcc program provides students with the background necessary to enter a career in public, private, or government accounting. The program focuses on understanding the role of accounting in managing business processes.

Accounting careers vary widely in today's complex, global economy. Graduates may find themselves tracking illegal funds for the FBI to preparing financial statements for multi-billion dollar firms. Generally, accounting career paths can be described as financial reporting, assurance, budget analysis, management accounting, tax accounting, and federal contract accounting. Accountants may work for public accounting firms, public or private corporations, governments at all levels, or for themselves in private practice.

The purpose of the Master of Accountancy program is to provide students with an academically rigorous course of study in accounting necessary for successful careers in professional accountancy in public, private, non-for-profit, and federal government accounting.
