Non-Accounting Undergraduates

The MAcc program is open to students who didn’t study accounting as undergraduates. For those considering a career change or wanting to obtain a skill set that is in high demand, earning a Master of Accounting degree is possible in 2 years or less.

“The advice and guidance I received from the faculty and staff was one of the most valuable aspects of my MAcc program. Since I didn’t have an accounting undergraduate degree and was less familiar with opportunities in the profession, they helped me figure out which classes to take in order to meet my career objectives. By the time my I finished my program, I knew I had made the right choice.”

Jonathan Wesley (BA in Psychology), Tax Associate, Grant Thornton
