The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program is designed to prepare students for careers in business, internal auditing, government, and public accounting. The primary goals and objectives of the program are to develop competent accounting professionals who are knowledgeable in the various areas of professional practice and who possess:
- The ability to provide, interpret, and communicate financial and operating information essential to understanding the activities of an enterprise;
- The preparation to assume increasing levels of responsibility and leadership in the organizations they join; and
- The qualifications to enter advanced programs in business and/or accounting
A large percentage of students become CPAs, and recently there has been an increased interest in the Certified Management Accountant (CMA), the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), and the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) examinations.
