Academically, the program is challenging and has taught me an unbelievable amount about accounting, finance, tax, and other subjects vital to my career. In addition, the MAcc program has molded me from a college student into a young professional. The communication and networking skills I refined here will be invaluable going forward.

Curriculum

Your destiny starts here.


The Vanderbilt Master of Accountancy program is a full-time, intense one-year program that begins in August of each year with graduation the following spring, and ends in August after the completion of the Becker CPA Review Course and CPA exam. The Vanderbilt MAcc program also offers the opportunity for an intensive ten-week internship from January to mid-March.

Courses taken with MBA and MS Finance students maximize interaction and learning throughout the program.

Entering students need to have demonstrated strong academic performance in prior university studies. Students must have completed introductory courses in financial accounting, managerial accounting, statistics and microeconomics from an accredited school, with a grade of ‘B’ or better. Many students are admitted to the program before these requirements are met. 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.

Our program is more specifically designed for non-accounting majors. It requires strong communication, analytical and team working skills.
