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).

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).

GMAT Scores

Successful applicants have an index score figured as follows: Last 60 hour GPA x 200 + Total GMAT Score >= 1100 or greater. An index score of greater that 1000 is typical of a successful candidate. All applicants are required to submit a GMAT score for full admission.

Provisional Admission

Provisionally accepted students may enroll in one semester for a maximum of nine hours before being required to submit a GMAT score. After this semester is completed, a hold will be placed on a student's account until GMAT scores are submitted to the Office of Graduate Admissions.

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.
