Our AACSB accredited MAcc program is designed to fully prepare students to enter the accounting profession and meet the educational requirements for CPA certification in most states. It builds upon a foundation of accounting knowledge with challenging and relevant coursework in business, accounting and information systems.
All coursework can be completed on the Lawrence campus. Students may also choose to take certain classes at the Edwards campus in Overland Park, Kan., or through various study abroad opportunities.
Students with undergraduate accounting degrees can complete the MAcc program in one year. Non-business undergraduates will take 1½ - 2 years to complete the program, depending on required prerequisites needed.
The MAcc program offers four different tracks of coursework to support a diversity of career choices. Each track is 30 credit hours in length, but the number and type of required courses and electives in each track varies. Development of business-focused written and oral communication skills is an essential component of each track.
