MAcc Intensive

Not an accounting major? Not a problem! The MAcc Intensive program is an opportunity for students with degrees in areas other than accounting to complete the accounting prerequisites and prepare for the MAcc program. Students complete prerequisites in one summer semester (May through August), and then enter either the full-time or part-time MAcc program the following fall semester. 

The MAcc Intensive program has the same application and admission requirements as the graduate program. Students who complete the Intensive coursework will be admitted to begin the MAcc program in fall*. The MAcc Intensive program requires 15 credit hours completed during one summer semester; students are asked not to work during the program.

Graduates from this program are very attractive to recruiters since they often have added maturity and a diversified background. All students completing the MAcc Intensive and MAcc programs have been placed in career positions.

*University academic probation standards and restrictions apply.


Students must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, submit a GMAT score (score of 550 or higher preferred) and complete an introductory financial accounting course with a B or better.

Students apply to the MAcc Intensive using the MAcc program application.

Coursework in the MAcc Intensive program will depend on a student’s background but will likely include:

For those with U.S. undergraduate degrees:

  •     ACCTG 6711: Financial Accounting I
  •     ACCTG 6712: Financial Accounting II
  •     ACCTG 6720: Cost/Managerial Accounting
  •     ACCTG 6731: U.S. Tax
  •     ACCTG 6750: Auditing & Accounting Information Systems

Students must complete ACCTG 5130: Financial Accounting III as an elective during the MAcc program.
