MPACC - Master of Professional Accounting
The MPACC program provides students with a high-quality professional accounting education either to secure entry level professional accounting positions in local, regional, and national organizations or to continue studies at the doctoral level. The MPACC serves students graduating from liberal arts based BBA programs at West Georgia and other comparable institutions. In addition, students from nonbusiness degree programs are served. The MPACC program attracts students from the local/regional area served by West Georgia. The program also attracts students from other states and countries. The program aims to attract students with liberal arts degrees and women and minority candidates are especially urged to apply. To obtain the MPACC degree, a student with a degree in accounting must compete thirty (30) semester hours of graduate course work beyond the foundation and basic accounting courses. For those that do not hold an undergraduate degree in accounting, a student must complete eleven (11) foundation and seven (7) basic accounting courses. The maximum number of courses required by this program of study is twenty-eight (28) and would apply primarily to nonbusiness candidates. The Richards College of Business is accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The MPACC program at the University of West Georgia is separately accredited by the AACSB.
Graduate degree programs in business (e.g., business administration and accounting) are accredited by the AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
