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 MAcc prerequisite coursework in the most efficient way possible. The program condenses six of the seven MAcc prerequisite courses into 15 credits that are completed over one Summer Semester (May through August). Following the successful completion of this Summer program, students continue into the full-time or part-time MAcc program in the Fall Semester*. The MAcc Intensive coursework begins approximately one week earlier than the University of Utah’s regular Summer Semester.

The MAcc Intensive program is rigorous and requires that students not work during the program. The program is limited to 25 dedicated students to ensure their success in the program. Graduates from this program are attractive to recruiters as they often have added maturity, diverse backgrounds, and a strong commitment to their coursework. All students completing the MAcc Intensive and MAcc program have been successful throughout the job recruiting process.

*University academic probation standards and restrictions apply.
