Program for students who hold a bachelor's degree in an area other than accounting
Students who have completed a bachelor’s degree in a field of study other than accounting, from an accredited institution, may be admitted directly to the Master of Accountancy program, but are encouraged to complete the Post-Baccalaureate Undergraduate Certificate in Accounting first. Completing the certificate program prior to the Master of Accountancy allows the student to fulfill the required prerequisites for the MACC program prior to entry. Information about applying to the Post-Baccalaureate Undergraduate Certificate in Accounting is available here.
Students will need to complete any unfinished or unapproved required prerequisites upon entry to the Master of Accountancy graduate program.
