Accelerated MAcc Program for Current UVM Undergraduates

Current UVM accounting concentration students are encouraged to apply for the Accelerated Master's Program (MAcc), which could provide students with up to nine credits towards the MAcc degree. Students apply for admission to the accelerated MAcc program no later than the end of their second semester of their senior year (December 1).

Qualifications for Admission to Accelerated MAcc Program include:
  • A declared UVM accounting concentration;
  • A minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.20;
  • Completion of the Graduate College application,
    • that must include at least one positive letter of recommendation from a UVM School of Business faculty member who taught the applicant in a 100- or 200-level course;
  • Indication on the first page of the Graduate College application, in the Department/Program line, that application is for the "Accelerated Master of Accountancy."

Please note that consistent with the MAcc application guidelines, GMAT scores are not required of students enrolled in the UVM School of Business Administration's accounting concentration with overall GPAs of 3.20 or higher. Students interested in receiving financial assistance from the Program, are required to earn a score of 550 on the GMAT.

Once accepted into the program, students can take up to nine (9) credit hours to be applied to their MAcc graduate degree, while completing their undergraduate degree. All courses to be counted toward the MAcc degree:

  • must be completed after acceptance of the students in the accelerated MAcc program;
  • must be 200- or 300-level business courses;
  • may not include any courses that are required for the undergraduate program (prohibition includes the four 100- and 200-level courses required for the accounting concentration); and
  • must be relevant to the MAcc study objective, as approved by the Program Director and all MAcc students' advisor, Professor Susan Hughes, Ph.D.
