Western Carolina University MAcc Program

Western Carolina University MAcc Program Our degree prepares students for careers in public accounting, industry, government, and non-profit, as well as the requirements for CPA licensing.

The Master of Accountancy degree is designed to provide students with the necessary foundation for successful careers in public accounting, industry, government, and not-for-profit institutions. It prepares students to meet the AICPA and state board 150-hour requirement for licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). We are part of WCU Programs at Biltmore Park, located in Asheville, North Carolina. You can complete the MAcc degree by attending courses part-time or full-time. Full time enrolled students can complete the program in one year. Prerequisites are required. This page includes important updates as well as information that may be of interest to current and prospective students, and alumni of our program. It is updated by Kelly McIntyre, College of Business graduate programs manager.

That they now all serve together on Western Carolina University’s College of Business accounti...

Applicants for 2020 summer and fall semesters may be conditionally admitted without GMAT scores. GMAC will eventually be moving to remote test-taking (mid-April?) but don't let that delay your application. WCU may be able to defer the requirement or waive it completely based upon past academic performance. Contact us for further information.

The MAcc program took a group tour of the Sierra Nevada brewing location in Mills River, NC. Sierra Nevada is one of the largest craft brewers in the United States. Mills River is their second, east coast location. The group learned about the history of the company, the brewery, production, quality assurance, and bottling processes, and - most importantly - had a great time together!
