Vanderbilt Master of Accountancy Programs

At Vanderbilt we offer more than just accounting classes. Here you have two tracks that allow you to tailor your studies to your interests. 

Our traditional MAcc track focuses on a career in the audit service line and prepares students with the skills and knowledge sought by the world’s leading professional services firms. The MAcc Valuation option prepares recent graduates from a diverse mix of quantitative-based educational disciplines for an exciting career at the intersection of accounting and finance. 

No matter which path you choose a Vanderbilt degree in accountancy will offer you the following benefits:

Get the inside track to land a job with a top firm.

You’ll have built-in access to recruiters from our partner firms—Deloitte & Touche, Ernst and Young, Grant Thornton, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers—four are the top ranked companies on BusinessWeek’s “Best Places to Launch a Career” list.

Have unparalleled access to a paid internship.

Through a structured placement process, our partner firms provide audit internship opportunities, as well as valuation internships, throughout the U.S. during the spring semester, giving you valuable real-world public accounting experience and the ability to earn $10,000 or more.

Learn more than accounting.

Along with analytical skills, both the MAcc and MAcc Valuation programs focus on building your leadership abilities and improving communications skills and critical thinking. As a result, you’re prepared to be a well-rounded business leader as well as a top-flight public accountant.

Become certified in your field. 

The traditional MAcc program prepares you to study and sit for the CPA exam while the MAcc Valuation program prepares you to sit for both the CPA and the CFA exam. No matter which program you choose, you will leave Owen as a certified professional.
