In the second term of the MAcc, you will be required to complete two program specific graduate accounting courses, two general business electives and two CPA Capstone courses (Integration and Team Management & Integration and Analysis) which focus on CFE examination preparation.

A minor option is also available in the MAcc CPA pathway. Depending on course availability, it may be possible to  minor in finance, human resource management or marketing.
