"I entered the MAcc program because I felt that it would better prepare me for the CPA exam as opposed to getting a second major. Following my undergraduate courses, I was primarily interested in working as an auditor. However, the MAcc program offered courses that sparked my interest in tax accounting. Following graduation from the program, I interviewed at Big 4 firms for both tax and audit positions. I ended up accepting an offer for a tax position thanks to the experiences I received from the MAcc program."
Our MAcc graduates have nearly a 100% placement rate.
Our MAcc graduates pass the CPA exam at a rate nearly double that of the national average.
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the accounting profession to grow by 7% between 2020 and 2030, adding approximately 135,000 new accounting jobs per year.
