The Master of Accountancy (MACY) degree is designed to accommodate applicants with a degree in any field. Applicants must complete the equivalent of a B.B.A. degree in accounting from an accredited institution or must enroll in the MACY core courses plus certain accounting courses set out by the Coordinator of Graduate Programs in Accounting. Students whose background is in business but who have completed MACY core courses or their equivalents seven or more years before entering the program may be required by the MACY Admissions Committee to successfully complete or test out of the MACY core courses. MACY core courses may be taken simultaneously with the MACY requirements, subject to course prerequisites and approval of the Coordinator of Graduate Programs in Accounting.
Applicants are evaluated by the MACY Admissions Committee based on the above set of application materials. Those who do not meet the requirements for unconditional admission may be considered for admission on a conditional basis. Admission deficiencies, which do not count toward degree requirements, must be removed before enrolling for the last semester before graduation.
