Master of Accountancy | Graduate
The Howard University Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program is a specialized advanced graduate-level business program focused on preparing graduates for successful careers in corporate accounting, governmental accounting, non-profit accounting, auditing, and advisory and consulting services.
The curriculum prepares students, in a significant fashion, for the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) examination through intensive and challenging coursework during the 30-hour program.
States demand 150 hours, normally a fifth year of accounting education, to sit for the examination.
Our program provides the required additional coursework, while allowing students to concurrently earn the prestigious MAcc degree.
