Master of Accounting

The UM Master of Accounting (MAcc) program offers the high degree of concentration in financial and managerial accounting, auditing and systems demanded of accounting professionals in public accountancy and industry today. It is among just a handful of such programs across the nation to be fully accredited by AACSB International, the leading accrediting body for business schools worldwide.

Career Options

Your Future in Accounting

The MAcc program is ideal for those who seek employment with public accounting firms as auditors, or with industry or government as accounting and information specialists. Emphasis is placed on the development and ongoing evolution of generally accepted accounting principles and auditing standards, product costing trends and issues and familiarization with computer information systems as an important tool of the accounting professional. Students can complete the MAcc program in two semesters of full-time study.

Curriculum

Two Tracks

The MAcc program offers two tracks: Assurance (MAcc-Assurance) for students planning to go into public accounting and Corporate Accounting (MAcc-Corporate) for students planning careers as controllers, CFOs or financial analysts. The MAcc is designed for the student who has taken the accounting and related courses required for an undergraduate major in accounting or other undergraduate business majors who have successfully completed the Accounting Summer Intensive Program. These students should be able to complete the MAcc in a year or less provided they enroll as full time students.
