Admissions Criteria

Entering students need to have demonstrated strong academic performance in prior university studies. Though our program is more specifically designed for non-accounting majors, students from any educational background may apply.

Students must have completed introductory courses in the following subject areas from an accredited school, with a grade of 'B' or better. Each candidate's academic background is considered and additional prerequisite requirements will be determined on an individual basis.

  • Financial Accounting
  • Managerial or Cost Accounting
  • Microeconomics
  • Statistics
Prerequisite course work must be done on-campus, in-person at an AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) accredited university. Most students are admitted to the program before coursework requirements are met.

In addition to academic coursework, our students carry themselves with professional composure and a mature professional presence. They are exceptional communicators with keen interpersonal savvy, a sensitivity to multiple stakeholder perspectives, and the ability to make high-quality decision with integrity. Vanderbilt MAcc students are ambitious, focused and committed to learning from experience and pursuing continuous development.
