About the MAcc Program

Total Semester Credit Hours = 30


The objective of the MAcc degree program is to prepare students for careers in professional accounting.  The program is designed to be flexible enough that a graduate can pursue a career in either the corporate or public sector while meeting the Texas state requirements to sit for the uniform CPA exam.

General Graduate Admission Requirements

MAcc Additional Admission Requirements

Admission to the MAcc degree program is determined primarily on the basis of predictors of success in graduate study: 1) a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution, 2) grade point average computed on the last 60 undergraduate hours and 3) a recommended score of 450 on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT).

Quantitative measures are integrated into an index that multiplies the applicant's 60-hour GPA times 200 and adds the total GMAT score (60-hour GPA X 200) + GMAT = > 1100. An index score of greater than 1100 is typical of a successful candidate.

Leveling Courses

Applicants must either have earned the equivalent of a B.B.A. degree in accounting from an accredited institution or must complete the MAcc leveling core (see degree plan).


Provisional Admission

Although a student may not have completed all baccalaureate work at the time of application, a provisional admission decision will be made on the strength of the student's permanent record before the student can be enrolled as a graduate student in business.

Transfer Coursework

Subject to approval by the coordinator of graduate programs and the dean of the College of Business and Technology, students may transfer up to nine hours of graduate credit earned at an approved university.
