The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) degree is designed to prepare students to become successful professionals in the field of accounting, one of the strongest areas of professional job growth. The University of Vermont (UVM) program is ideal for:
- Students who studied accounting as undergraduates; and
- Those individuals with undergraduate degrees in areas other than accounting who now want to prepare for successful careers with public accounting firms or in corporate accounting.
Both types of students will earn 30 hours of graduate credit, thereby meeting the 150 credit hour requirement imposed by most states to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination.
As of July 1, 2014, Vermont and New Hampshire will join 45 other states that require 150 hours of education to either sit for the CPA exam or to become certified as a CPA. Most public accounting firms require job applicants to complete the 150 hour requirement prior to beginning their employment with the firm. The MAcc degree also provides individuals interested in becoming a Certified Management Accountant (CMA) with the educational background to successfully pass the exam and begin careers in corporate, governmental and not-for-profit accounting.
