Program Overview

A Size That Matters

We pride ourselves on student interaction and involvement in the classroom experience. Through our small, highly-selective program, you will develop a lifetime network of friends in accounting-related fields. We limit enrollment to 20-25 outstanding applicants, which allows us to 1) focus on the close-knit community of scholars and professors developed through our program and 2) build upon that competitive advantage in the saturated market of MAcc programs. As a student in our program, you will not feel like “just a number.”

Opportunities

We offer select MAcc students the opportunity to teach the discussion sections of our introductory-level accounting classes, and the response from both our MAcc instructors and the undergraduates enrolled in those courses continues to be overwhelmingly positive. Through this exciting opportunity, you will build self-confidence, perfect your presentation and public speaking skills, and brush up on introductory accounting topics (handy for when you begin your career).

Placement

Our graduates are heavily recruited with national placement. We are a target recruiting school for the Big Four public accounting firms as well as other national, regional, and local public accounting and consulting firms, corporations, and financial industries.

"Miami MAcc graduates have a noticeably superior business sense, a deeper understanding of business relevance, and quickly gain staff and client trust." – Crowe Horwath recruiter

With over a 95 percent placement rate, recent graduates have begun their careers in the major Midwestern markets, with many going to Chicago, while others have gone to New York, Washington D.C., Denver, Seattle, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, and overseas.  One of our graduates was selected for a prestigious FASB internship in Norwalk, CT.

Career Progress

The Miami MAcc program’s emphasis is on a long-term career in an accounting-related field.   Our courses in risk management, fraud, ERP systems, corporate finance, and tax planning combine to prepare you for a career, not just an entry-level position.

"If you're looking to equip yourself with the tools to succeed in any business environment, keep an open mind and work hard in this program. I would choose this program a thousand times over if I had to do it again." – MAcc alumnus

Professional Interaction

A key component of our program is interaction with international accounting executives.  Recent guests in our MAcc classrooms include Ernie Almonte, chairman of the AICPA, and Lynn Good, group executive and CFO of Duke Energy.  In the spring, you will participate in the Executive Conference on Governance, Risk Management, and Reporting sponsored by our Center for Business Leadership.

"I never would have imagined I would get the opportunity to have engaged conversations with top executives on issues facing the global society.  This was an amazing opportunity." – MAcc alumna
