Master of Accountancy

The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) is designed for individuals who seek to obtain an advanced degree that builds upon the skills and knowledge obtained with an undergraduate degree in accounting.

Building on 20 years of experience, Weatherhead introduced a unique Master of Accountancy (MAcc) curriculum in 1998. Each year, 25 to 30 highly qualified students enter the MAcc program. Smaller class sizes allow for greater one-on-one and small-group interaction among faculty and students. Our specialized elective courses are taught by high-level, experienced practitioners who share a commitment to excellence in teaching and to providing an innovative learning environment.

Is This Program Right for Me?

Most states require that applicants complete 150 credit hours of college education to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam; thus, a master’s degree has become the standard for professional accountants. Weatherhead’s MAcc program, fully accredited by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), builds on the foundation of an undergraduate accounting degree to provide students with the technical expertise for long-term career success.

The MAcc offers options to prepare graduates for diverse paths in public or corporate accounting, taxation, financial analysis, management and consulting. Our students are presented with opportunities to develop their skills in critical thinking, leadership and effective communication, all part of a Weatherhead education. Today, more than 500 Weatherhead MAcc alumni are employed in professional positions in 23 countries on five continents.
