Fast-paced and highly interactive classes are designed to equip participants with the most relevant business concepts necessary for success as they begin their MBA studies.

Courses are completed over 12 weeks in the summer and students attend classes two weeknights per week and on Saturdays during the program. Students who complete the Summer Business Institute hit the ground running, fully prepared for success in Massey’s MBA program. All students must first be admitted to a Massey Graduate School of Business MBA program.

Convenient online (SBI) and hybrid (SAI) instruction begins May 20, 2023, and continues through early August, with all classes taught by Massey MBA faculty.

Summer Accounting Institute

Accountants are in demand and recruiters want to meet with our Summer Accounting Institute students before our annual Meet the Firms event, which is held in early fall. Accounting recruiters will visit periodically during SAI classes to meet with students and discuss the accounting industry and career opportunities in their firms. SAI students typically accept their first accounting job offer by October.

Massey's Master of Accountancy prerequisites includes 18 hours of undergraduate accounting coursework. The Summer Accounting Institute is designed and taught by Massey faculty members and completes all prerequisite coursework required for the MAcc program. 

SAI courses include the following subjects:

  • Financial Accounting
  • Cost Accounting
  • Tax Accounting
  • Audit Accounting
  • Excel Workshop
  • Career Planning

These 12-week* courses are scheduled to meet the needs of working professionals. SBI classes are held on Tuesday & Thursday evenings (6:15 PM – 9:00 PM) & Saturdays (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM) and SAI classes are held on Monday & Wednesday evenings (6:15 – 9:00 PM) & Saturdays (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM).

SBI and SSI are the only AACSB-accredited program in Tennessee that combines a work-friendly, fast-track approach to preparing non-business majors for Massey’s MBA programs.
