In either format, the MAcc program gives a solid foundation in the principles of accounting, as well as a breadth of knowledge in related business disciplines. We also offer a MAcc Intensive program for those who don’t have a background in accounting, and a MAcc International program, for international students with an undergraduate degree in accounting.
