Master of Accounting

The MAcc program (after completion of the BSAc) is designed primarily for students who have completed their undergraduate work at another institution and now want to attend the Fisher School of Accounting for their graduate work. The program offers three tracks: auditing, taxation and generalist. With few exceptions, University of Florida students who want to earn their MAcc degree should plan on entering the 3/2 program. Currently enrolled accounting students should use the MAcc Student Resources to develop a plan of study.

Preparatory Coursework

The MAcc program assumes applicants to have a strong foundation in accounting consistent with the knowledge acquired from an undergraduate accounting degree. These "preparatory courses" are typically completed prior to admission.

Because each institution has its own undergraduate degree requirements, it is typical that some preparatory courses required by the Fisher School of Accounting have not been met. Frequently, the deficiencies are in accounting and communications courses. These courses, and any other unmet preparatory courses for the MAcc program, must be completed prior to being awarded a Master of Accounting degree. In certain instances, these courses are prerequisites for MAcc course requirements and can lengthen the time to graduation.

Preparatory Coursework

Preparatory courses may be taken at other institutions prior to enrollment at the University of Florida. However, students may be asked to complete a course substitution form establishing that the course taken is equivalent to the required Fisher School preparatory course.
