Master of Accountancy (MAcc)

Master of Accountancy Program Overview

The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program at North Dakota State University is a non-thesis, professional program structured to advance the knowledge of qualified students with an undergraduate accounting degree. Students without an undergraduate accounting degree may be conditionally admitted to the program and will be required to take a core of undergraduate accounting courses in addition to the graduate courses.

The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program at NDSU is designed to have students complete graduate studies needed to advance their careers whether their career be in public accounting, corporate accounting, or government accounting and prepare them for the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam. Our approach to learning combines case study and applied learning in a collaborative environment. The focus of the program is to develop a student’s analytical skills, provide students with in-depth accounting knowledge and skills, prepare students to identify accounting problems, research the problem and possible solutions through using on-line and other databases, and present a recommended action. The learning environment also provides students the opportunity to draw from the experiences of fellow students from diverse backgrounds as well as interact with corporate, public-accounting, government, and not-for-profit accounting discipline leaders.

Through the College of Business, North Dakota State University's MAcc program is fully accredited by AACSB International,the premier accrediting agency in business administration and accounting.
