Accelerate Your Accounting Career

The Master of Science in Accounting (MAcc) is a full-time, 30-credit master’s degree program you can complete in 9-12 months, or two terms of study. Begin your studies in the fall (August start) or spring (January start), and gain the advanced accounting skills you need for success in public accounting, corporate accounting, business management careers, or further academic studies.

Upon graduating, you’ll be prepared to pass the CPA exam, and you will have satisfied the 150 credit-hour requirement required by most U.S. states to qualify for CPA certification.

What makes Katz unique is the environment they cultivate for students right from the start. Katz encouraged a culture of collaboration, what I learned outside the classroom from my classmates has been just as valuable as what I learned from my professors.
