Master of Accountancy

Master of Accountancy

The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program offers an experience for students to develop their skills that will enhance their chances of successful accounting careers in private practice, government, business, and nonprofit organizations. We are seeking students with a desire to continue their education, with an end goal to work in a professional accounting position. Is that you? Apply today.

In consultation with the MAcc Advisor, students can plan their course of studies during the MAcc to participate in the CPA review course that allows them to sit for the exam while in the MAcc program. Several students have been successful in passing the CPA exam by the time they have completed the Master of Accountancy at AUM.

MAcc Admission Requirements

  • An undergraduate degree in accounting from an accredited college or university. Official transcripts required at time of application. If you do not have a degree in accounting, you can still qualify for the MAcc by completing all prerequisite accounting courses.
  • A satisfactory Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT) Score (current within 5 years) unless you have an accounting certification (i.e.; CPA, CMA, CIA, CGMA, CISA, CGFM) or a graduate degree from an accredited college of university.

Note: Meeting minimum qualifications does not guarantee admission into the MAcc program. Relevant work or internship experience is preferred, but not required.
