Program Length

The Master of Accounting (MAcc) program entails a minimum of two semesters of full-time study for a student with a bachelor's degree in accounting.

Students with other business-related degrees can expect to spend about two years in the program. Those with non-business-related undergraduate degrees should plan to spend at least three years in the program.


The School of Accounting and Taxation offers several tuition waivers and private scholarships for MAcc students. Scholarships are awarded three times a year to students for each upcoming semester based on diverse criteria including but not limited to GPA, GMAT scores, program participation and individual scholarship criteria.

We have limited funds for our most qualified students in the MAcc program. Students must apply for scholarships they are interested in per semester to be considered. Scholarships are also available through Discover Accounting.
