MAcc Admissions

Applying to KSU MAcc Program

Our applicants come from a diverse background and all possess a commitment to developing their audit/advisory and tax knowledge and professional skills. The MAcc program is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in accounting from an accredited institution.

Admission Criteria

MAcc admissions are granted to candidates showing high promise of success in graduate accounting study.* Candidates are evaluated on the following components:

  • Letter of Interest
  • Resume
  • Academic background with an accounting concentration
  • Optional Letters of Reference (up to two)
  • Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT)**

*International applicants have additional requirements; see Graduate Admissions.

** GMAT waivers are granted to high-achieving students. Please see GMAT waiver form in online application.

In addition to principle level courses, all applicants should have 24 hours of general business courses and successfully complete the following accounting courses prior to beginning the program:

  • Intermediate Accounting I
  • Intermediate Accounting II
  • Accounting Information Systems
  • Taxation
  • Auditing and Assurance.

Accelerated Bachelor’s Master’s (ABM) Program

If you are a KSU student close to graduation, you may qualify for our Accelerated Bachelor’s Master’s (ABM) program. The ABM provides qualified KSU undergraduate students the opportunity to begin Macc studies at KSU in their senior year, while simultaneously satisfying accounting elective requirements for their BBA Accounting degree.

You may use up to nine credit hours of MAcc-level courses to meet the requirements of both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree. However, there must be at least 150 unique hours between the two programs. Given the KSU BBA Accounting degree is 123 hours and the MAcc is 30 hours, if you choose to substitute more than one MAcc course for undergraduate accounting elective courses, you will need to pick up the additional hours through unused course hours (e.g., extra internship hours or transfer courses not applied to the degree) in order to total 150 unique hours. To qualify for this program, you must have an overall GPA of 3.5 or greater. Visit the Graduate College for more information.
