Master of Accountancy Curriculum

The 36-credit-hour MAcc is a full-time program typically beginning in the fall semester. Upon completion of the program, graduates will have satisfied the educational requirements to sit for the CPA examination in the state of Ohio.


Because the program builds upon skills and knowledge developed in an undergraduate accountancy program, all admitted candidates must complete certain prerequisite courses in accounting and business before or during the MAcc program.

MAcc students select supporting elective courses in consultation with the graduate program adviser to ensure that these classes are in line with their academic and professional goals.
