Master of Accountancy (MAcc)

Available at the Milledgeville Campus.


The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) emphasizes graduate-level accounting topics and business skills in areas identified by the profession as critical for success in the challenging and dynamic business environment. The 30-semester hour program also satisfies the education requirements for licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and helps prepare students for success on certification exams. 


Current GC accounting majors that meet entrance requirements to the Master of Accountancy may choose the "early enrollment" program during the senior year of their undergraduate program. The choice provides a seamless option for the student to commence the MAcc program while completing the B.B.A.


Admission to the Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program is limited to holders of a baccalaureate degree (with the exception of MAcc five-year track students) from a regionally accredited institution.  It is expected that admission will be granted only to students showing high promise of success in graduate study.  The candidate's performance on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) and the candidate's undergraduate work will be used to determine admission status.  The median GMAT score for currently admitted students is 510.  If a potential student has taken the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) within the past three years, please contact the Director of Graduate Programs in Business to determine if the GRE can be substituted for the GMAT.


Applicants may enter any semester.  Admission is granted after meeting the admission standards.
