Coursework

The courses you’ll take in pursuit of your MAC degree will challenge you and will prepare you well for a successful career as a professional accountant. 

Courses

The curriculum of the MAC Program is structured such that students with little to no background in accounting can quickly build the knowledge required and progress with confidence through escalating levels of technical complexity.

Across introductory courses, core courses, tax/audit concentration courses, and electives, the curriculum builds on itself, integrating financial analysis, quantitative methods, and behavioral sciences at each step along the way.


Introductory Courses

Introductions to the basics of accounting, finance, business law, and economics, plus a professional writing boot camp. Some of these courses may be waived if equivalent courses were completed in during undergraduate studies.
