The advisors provide academic guidance, assistance with academic policies and requirements, along with resources for academic support. MAcc Advisors collaborate with faculty and staff to offer a complete advising experience. Academic advisors are available by appointment and on a walk-in basis (subject to availability).
There are several prerequisite courses for the MAcc program.
One prerequisite course may be completed during the program as an elective. Six of the seven courses must be completed prior to entering the program.
Core courses for the full-time program are offered at least once a year. Core courses for the part-time program are offered at least once every two years in the evening, on Tuesdays or Thursday evenings. Semesters in which courses are offered will vary from year to year.
The School of Accounting has a strong faculty whose research has influenced practice, regulation and academic thought. We host the annual Utah Winter Accounting Conference, which brings top scholars from across the country to Utah.
All MAcc students take a one-week course at the beginning of the program called “Accounting Professionalism and Team Building.” This course, often called “Week Zero,” is designed not only to build camaraderie but to provide students with the resources they need to start preparing for careers in accounting. Week Zero includes networking opportunities with professionals and extensive information on recruiting for public accounting and other industries.
