Earn a degree that is needed in every industry.

The need for accountants is growing in every sector and the U.S. Department of Labor expects that number to rise. Set yourself up for success in any industry you are passionate about or enjoy a career working with clients in a variety of industries. If you did not study accounting as an undergraduate, you can reboot your career through our Summer Accounting Institute in just 12 weeks. 

The Master of Accountancy program prepares students to sit for the CPA exam and pursue careers in public or private accounting. The majority of MAcc courses are taken in the accounting department and elective classes are selected from the Massey School’s MBA course offerings. Classes are held on weeknights and the program can be completed on a full or part-time basis, in as little as one or as many as three years.

Massey offers flexible scheduling to accommodate students’ professional and personal commitments, with most accounting courses offered yearly and some each semester. In addition, MAcc students with accounting degrees can begin the program in the fall, spring, or summer semesters. Students with degrees outside accounting can begin in the summer semester with Summer Accounting Institute.

An additional characteristic that distinguishes the Massey Graduate School of Business is the personal attention given to each student’s learning needs and professional goals. Enrollments are managed to ensure small class sizes (an average of 25 students in core classes and 14 in electives) so that students have significant opportunities to interact with each professor and their peers. All faculty are deeply committed to ensuring that the learning environment is effective for each individual.
