Master of Accountancy (MAcc)
The Master of Accountancy is a one-year, intensive program of advanced study for students who have earned an undergraduate degree in accounting. It provides students with exposure to advanced theories and topics in the growing field of accounting. The program offers an opportunity to pursue specialized interests as well as a broader knowledge of the accounting discipline in general.
Students are prepared for careers as professional accountants in public and private organizations. Graduates develop specialized skillsets, research authoritative databases, and propose solutions to complex and controversial accounting problems. Graduates draw on their integrated, comprehensive body of knowledge and experience to make accounting-related decisions.
Students who complete their undergraduate degree in accounting at Hodges University or the equivalent from an accredited institution will normally meet all prerequisites for the Master of Accountancy Degree. However, students without an undergraduate degree/equivalent in accounting or lacking foundational prerequisites may be required to incorporate additional courses to complete the Master of Accountancy program.
The Master’s of Accountancy Program was implemented in September 2013. This program is not currently accredited by IACBE. It can be considered for accreditation after two years of assessment data have been collected and submitted to IACBE with an application for accreditation.
