Getting in

Admission is open to all majors

The number of semesters to graduate depends on your undergraduate major and more specifically, the courses you took. If you majored in accounting in undergrad, you'll probably need just two semesters to complete the MAc degree. Non-accounting majors typically need more time, but it depends on your undergrad courses.

Accounting majors

Pick the clearest and most rewarding path to your CPA licensure and earn a master’s degree in just one year. Make your 30 hours count by maximizing your odds of passing the CPA exam and earning a degree that will set you apart throughout your career. No GMAT required.

Non-accounting majors

Fast-track to a career known for its stellar job prospects. The MAc offers you a path to a business master’s and CPA licensure at the same time in this 2-year program (includes prerequisites). If you’re unsure how to plan any remaining undergraduate coursework to meet the program requirements, contact us to discuss your options.
