Requirements

The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) degree prepares students for professional positions in accounting with the potential for advancement throughout their career. Building upon an undergraduate education in accounting and business it qualifies students for entry-level positions in public accounting, industry, government, and not-for-profit organizations. The MAcc qualifies students to sit for the Uniform CPA Examinations in the State of Utah which is a necessary step in becoming a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). It also provides a base from which students may pursue related certifications such as Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Certified Management Accountant (CMA), and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). Combined with appropriate experience the MAcc can lead to a wide variety of significant leadership positions in accounting and business including Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
