MAcc Valuation

Valuation Curriculum

Your future starts here.

The Vanderbilt MAcc Valuation Program is a full-time, intense, one-year program that begins in August each year. Small class sizes and courses taken with MBA, MS Finance and Master of Accountancy program students maximize interaction and learning throughout the program.

Prepare you for success in the CFA and CPA exams.

As a Vanderbilt MAcc Valuation student, you will have the unique opportunity to prepare to sit for both the CFA and CPA exams using the Schweser CFA and Becker CPA review courses. Vanderbilt has partnered with Schweser and Becker to offer review courses on campus. Students sit for both exams concurrent with taking the respective Schweser and Becker courses.

Program Prerequisites

Students must have completed introductory courses in financial accounting, managerial accounting, corporate finance, calculus, statistics, microeconomics and macroeconomics; and intermediate-level courses in microeconomics, calculus and statistics from an accredited school, with a grade of ‘B’ or better. Many students are admitted to the program before these requirement are met, with the expectation that requirements will be met before starting the program. Any additional prerequisite requirements will be determined on an individual basis, as some students may need to develop core competencies prior to the start of the program.
