Masters of Accountancy
The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) degree is a professional
graduate degree for individuals with an accounting background seeking advanced study in the discipline of accounting and broader aspects of business. Specifically, the primary goal of the MAcc is to assist in the preparation of professional accountants. Three supporting objectives of the Program are 1) To assist students in dealing with unstructured problems and complex decision making
in accounting and business environments; 2) To assist students in improving their communications skills in a professional setting; and 3) For those who choose to pursue the CPA designation as part of their professional development, assist in their preparation for the CPA examination.
The Program is intended to fulfill expectations of the public accounting profession by providing a graduate option to fulfilling the 150-hour requirement currently in effect in most public accounting jurisdictions, including North Dakota and Minnesota. While primarily intended for individuals entering public accounting, the MAcc may also serve those who wish to pursue careers in industrial and governmental/nonprofit accounting. Additionally, this Program would prepare those wishing to pursue further study in a doctoral program.
As of October 12, 2011, the Master of Accoutancy Program at UND is no longer receiving applications for admission.
