Masters in Accounting
A Master’s in Accounting Degree (MAcc), also known as Master’s of Professional Accountancy (MPAcy), is an advanced, graduate-level business degree focused on a curriculum that prepares individuals to work in the accounting field in various roles, such as auditors at large accounting firms, management positions in corporate accounting, or as Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) for individuals or businesses. Graduates are prepared to take the Uniform Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam, which is required for CPA licensure in most states and is expected for many advanced accounting jobs.
Reasons to Earn a Master’s Degree in Accounting
The curriculum covered in a master’s in accounting degree program is focused primarily on fundamental concepts of accounting, effective accounting methods, and gaining the knowledge required to pass the CPA exam. An individual with talent and interest in working with numbers and strong attention to detail can excel in this career field. The demand for skilled accountants is strong and as a result, companies offer attractive salaries that can exceed six figures. There are also strong opportunities for accountants to advance to upper management positions such as CEO of a corporation. If you prefer to be your own boss, you can start your own accounting firm and provide accounting services for businesses or individuals.
