Master of Accountancy (ACCTNCY MACC)

30 Credits


The Master of Accountancy Program at Davenport University is designed for the self-directed, career-minded student to “Get where the world is going” in his/her desired area of concentration in Accounting.  Students may customize their curriculum according to their desired outcomes.  The Master of Accountancy program offers multiple tracks that either culminate in taking CPA, CMA, CIA or CFE preparation courses, or focuses more broadly on general accountancy or a finance emphasis.  The Master of Accountancy is one of only a handful of programs across the country that offers graduate-level concentrations in fraud investigation, managerial accounting and internal auditing.  Within and across these tracks, the core learning prepares students to ethically address current accounting-related issues through data analytics and research, mastery of accounting processes and through integrating what they have learned through experiential learning and field practice.  
A hallmark of the DU Master of Accountancy program is learning through practice whether it be through case studies, field projects, internships, presentations or simulations.  Students will have many opportunities to exercise critical thinking skills while applying their accounting knowledge to correctly identify and understand real-world challenges.  Students will develop their leadership ability as they work with others to develop ethical, effective business solutions. 

ACCT515 Advanced Accounting Topics (3cr), the program prerequisite, offers preparation to strengthen analytical and interpretive skills in accounting for business mergers and acquisitions, partnerships and global accounting prior to entering the Master of Accountancy (MAcc).

Students who currently have the CFE, CIA, CMA, or the CPA may be able to apply that credit to that specific Specialty.
