Accounting Program Information

Master of Accounting: Three variations of the Master of Accounting degree program are available. These allow students to select one of three options: a concentration in Auditing, a concentration in Taxation, or no concentration. Minimum admission requirements include an acceptable score on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), with a minimum score of 550 and completion of essays with a minimum score of 4. International students must submit a satisfactory score on the following: TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language: paper-based=570, internet-based=86).  Minimum scores on individual test sections are also required.  Additional information, including minimum GPA standards for admission, may be viewed at

Combined degree program: The recommended curriculum to prepare for a professional career in accounting is the 3/2 five-year program with a joint awarding of the Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Master of Accounting degrees upon completion of the 150-hour program. The entry point into the 3/2 program is the beginning of the senior year.

Traditional Master of Accounting program: Students who have already completed an undergraduate degree in accounting may enter the 1-year M.Acc. degree program which requires satisfactory completion of 34 hours of course work. A minimum of 28 credits must be in graduate-level courses; a minimum of 20 credits must be in graduate-level accounting courses. The remaining credits are selected from business core courses and elective courses. Students are cautioned to seek early advisement, since many graduate courses are offered only once a year.

J.D./M.Acc. program: A joint program leading to the Juris Doctor and Master of Accounting degrees is offered by the Fisher School of Accounting and Levin College of Law.

Specific details for the M.Acc., J.D./M.Acc., and Ph.D. programs are available at
