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
- Apply Online.
- Pay the application fee.
- Submit official transcripts to the Office of Graduate Admissions and unofficial transcripts to the CBT Graduate Advising Office.
- Submit official GMAT scores to the Office of Graduate Admissions and unofficial scores may be sent to the CBT Graduate Advising Office.
- There are additional requirements for international students such as a detailed international
transcript evaluation which determines an applicant's degree comparability to a US bachelor's degree (UT Tyler does NOT evaluate international transcripts).
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.
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).
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.
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.
