Master of Accountancy #master #of #accountancy


Master of Accountancy


The MAcc program provides candidates with greater breadth and depth of knowledge in accountancy than is possible in the baccalaureate program. The program is designed to meet the increasing needs of business, government, and public accounting. Students entering the MAcc program must already have the equivalent of an undergraduate degree in accounting from an AACSB-accredited school. The program may also be structured to satisfy the requirements to sit for the CPA examination in Florida.

Program Structure

Students who have the equivalent of an undergraduate major in accounting at USF (including 21-24 hours of upper-level accounting coursework taken within the last five years from an institution with AACSB accreditation), are required to complete 30 hours of coursework. The majority of the coursework (24 hours) is devoted to the study of accounting. The remaining six hours consist of study in other areas of business, including economics, entrepreneurship, finance, and information systems/decision sciences. These six hours are selected by the student in consultation with the MAcc Program advisor. At least 70 percent of the coursework must be at the 6000 level.

The MAcc curriculum has a set of two required, common core accounting courses. Students may elect a concentration in either tax or audit/systems (12 hours of coursework). If students do not wish to select a concentration, they have the option to follow the generalist track. The sequencing of courses in this track will be determined in consultation with the MAcc advisor.
