The Masters of Accounting (MAcc) program has been updated, beginning with the Fall 2017 semester.

The MAcc program remains at 30 credit hours, but now degree-seeking students will take 15 credits of accounting classes and 15 credits of Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) classes. This is consistent with the 150 hour rule and is intended to broaden the skillsets of our graduates as they prepare for advancement.

"The program structure will prepare our students to be leaders in the accounting profession," said MAcc Program Director Rebekah Heath, PhD.

This new program structure allows students to choose specific MBA and MOL classes that are of interest to them and give them well-rounded graduate preparation. Topics such as decision making and leadership, conflict management, managerial economics, and marketing management are all available.

"There are a wide variety of choices, covering many interests students may have," Heath said.

For more information about the MAcc program, check out the MAcc website or email Dr. Rebekah Heath.

"Innovation is fostered by information gathered from new connections; from insights gained by journeys into other disciplines or places; from active, collegial networks and fluid, open boundaries. Innovation arises from ongoing circles of exchange, where information is not just accumulated or stored, but created. Knowledge is generated anew from connections that weren't there before."
- Meg Wheatley, from her 2001 book "Leadership and the New Science
