All courses (except ENC 5236) are offered in the 2 credit hour modular format and are typically only offered once a year. Prerequisites are strictly enforced.

*Because a variety of finance courses satisfy this requirement, the courses are listed in the approved electives section below.
Approved Business Electives
The MAcc program requires the completion of 4 credits of approved elective modules. The electives are designed to enhance the student's graduate plan of study by allowing him/her to further explore an academic area of interest relating to his/her career goals. Each semester, the school will post on its website a list of graduate courses that are available for the forthcoming semester that will satisfy the approved elective requirements. For courses not listed, students may submit a petition to the Fisher School requesting its approval. The petition should clearly state how the proposed course will enhance the student's program of graduate studies.
