Graduate Information

The MPAcc program and courses are offered in downtown Greenville, SC.

Master of Professional Accountancy

  • Students with appropriate references, background course work, grade point averages and graduate entrance exam scores may be admitted upon completion of a four-year baccalaureate degree program. Students complete a 15-hour core in business that emphasizes ethics, law, international finance and the accountant's role in business and responsibility to society. Beyond the core, students obtain a 15-hour specialization in either assurance services or taxation.
  • Students develop their critical thinking, research, documentation and presentation skills to deal with problems that have multiple solutions. Through case-based learning, students learn to “think outside the box,” developing the ability to identify problems, research and document alternatives, make recommendations and justify their recommendation.
  • Students receiving the master's degree are well prepared to begin careers in public accounting or to continue graduate study.
  • Students with the appropriate prerequisites may complete the program within 12 months.

The admission requirements and process, prerequisites, student responsibilities, curriculum, course calendar and course descriptions are detailed in the MPAcc Program Handbook.
