* Students in the on-campus format who have secured an approved pre-MAC summer internship, and who have received a B- or better in an Introduction to Finance course at an AACSB-accredited institution, may start the program after their summer internship concludes. These students do not participate in the Structured Recruiting process and will join the MAC program in mid-August. For more information, consult our “Summer Internship Guide” (PDF).

** The on-campus format incorporates various required global education activities into the curriculum. Students will receive an additional global education credit upon completion of these activities.

*** Online students with accounting-heavy backgrounds may be eligible for course waivers or substitutions based on a review of previous courses completed during their undergraduate studies.
