Become a Dynamic Accounting Professional

We help aspiring accountants become dynamic professionals.

The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) is designed to develop the next generation of professional accountants. The MAcc 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 Utah and many other states, which is a necessary step in becoming a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). It also provides a base to pursue related certifications as Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Certified Management Accountant (CMA), and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). Ultimately, a MAcc can lead to a wide variety of significant leadership positions in accounting and business including controller, CFO, and CEO.

Applications for Fall 2018 are now open. Application deadline is April 1, or until the program is full.

Contact the MAcc Office today to schedule an appointment to receive answers for your questions and get details about the application process.
