MAcc Course Requirements

The ISU MAcc assumes that students enter with an undergraduate accounting degree. If a student has an undergraduate business degree but not an accounting degree, the student will need to complete the equivalent of an undergraduate accounting major core. At ISU that includes the following courses*:

*Note that some programs offer intermediate accounting in two rather than three semester courses. A two-course intermediate accounting sequence is acceptable.

If a student has an undergraduate degree that is neither an accounting degree nor a business degree, depending on the students degree and experience, the student will need some business core courses such as economics, finance, and operations management in addition to the accounting major core outlined above. Students will need to work with the COB to develop a tailored business core program that will effectively prepare the student for the MAcc program.
