Our MAc program is a 30-hour, full-time program designed to be completed in two consecutive semesters beginning in the fall, with some optional sections available during the summer prior to full-time fall enrollment. The MAc curriculum also provides the additional hours beyond those required for a BBA in accounting to take the CPA exam in Texas.
- MAc Core. The MAc core curriculum combines advanced critical accounting knowledge with soft skills such as professional communication, analysis and persuasion. The goal is to provide you with various perspectives of the accounting and business world.
- Audit and Assurance Services. Develop the skills to audit or consult with multinational corporations. Graduates with this concentration typically begin their careers in the audit practice of a professional services firm.
- Taxation. Develop a foundation for analyzing the way tax strategy impacts the current business environment. Graduates with this concentration typically begin their careers in the tax division of a professional services firm or in a corporate tax department.
- Financial Reporting and Valuation. Develop accounting knowledge and analytical skills for decision-making in today’s complex business environment. While many graduates with this concentration will likely begin their careers as assurance professionals, this concentration also prepares graduates more broadly for positions in consulting practices of professional services firms, with investment banking firms or other financial institutions.
