The program emphasizes appropriate research strategies and techniques, effective business writing, and professional presentation skills. Students work closely with their academic advisor to design a course of study that best suits their future career objectives and prior coursework

The majority of MAcc graduates work in Big-4, regional and local CPA firms, within the assurance or tax areas. Other graduates work in the accounting departments of regionally-based corporations.

Common practice is to complete the MAcc degree before sitting for the CPA or other professionally-qualifying examinations. Students are strongly encouraged to sit for the first two parts of the four-part examination in the summer directly after graduation. Alumni following this advice have had great success in passing at least one section prior to beginning their full-time employment.

The Accounting Club trip to Boston provides a great opportunity for our international students to visit with UVM MAcc alumni at large accounting firms
