Many MAcc students elect to participate in one of the two MAcc short-term graduate study abroad programs.
Students participating in the Costa Rica study abroad program learn more about business in Latin America, and more specifically, Costa Rica, from the business faculty at the University of Costa Rica. The program includes visits to multinational and local companies. Meetings with upper-level executives help students learn more about business strategies, practices, and opportunities within the region.
“The most valuable part of the Costa Rica program was getting to experience an environment very different from my own. Talking with the Costa Rican students, learning about how businesses operate and utilize the carbon markets, hearing about the impressive green initiatives being implemented, and seeing how beautiful Costa Rica is gave me a real appreciation for the country’s culture and mindset. Those are things that will stay with me my whole life and has very positively altered my perceptions of Latin America.”

Students participating in the South Africa study abroad program develop a strong sense of global awareness. Our partnership with Nelson Mandela University provides students the opportunity to travel to Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, and Cape Town to learn about the business environment and culture of Africa, particularly South Africa.
“As globalization becomes increasingly prevalent in business, it becomes that much more important that we take advantage of opportunities to grow our global competency. Visiting South Africa not only helped me grow closer to other MAcc Students, but allowed me to see the political impacts that government can have on the accounting profession.”
