MASTER OF ACCOUNTING PROGRAM
The University of Oregon's Master of Accounting degree program (MAcc) at the Lundquist College of Business helps each student develop professional knowledge and skills foundational to an accounting career. Although the courses you take are at the center of the experience, they are part of an integrated set of activities, experiences, and resources that help you reach, discover, and achieve your potential.
So much a part of any profession is putting yourself out there to try new things and stretch yourself. The accounting profession is no different and the teamwork aspect of the MAcc program helps you learn how to relate to all of your other classmates and to work together. Through collegial interactions and activities, you'll reach within yourself to uncover things you thought you could never do and then do it.
The faculty and staff of the college endeavor to provide personalized service and care for each student. We have carefully crafted required and elective accounting courses to provide students with the opportunity to deepen their understandings of the most current accounting theory and practice including fair value and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), corporate taxation, pass-through entity taxation, cost management, and auditing. Students also sharpen critical thinking, teamwork, and communication skills in these courses and in the nonaccounting electives, discovering and exploring new ways to approach and solve accounting and business challenges.
Through the MAcc program's curriculum and educational approach, you will achieve true professionalism. You will develop knowledge, skills, and a mindset that go beyond learning new accounting methods or tax laws. You'll hone your ability to work in a constructive and respectful way. You'll learn how to communicate an attention to detail through your appearance, the appearance of your work, and your attitude. You'll be able to comfortably interact with people informally as well as put together precise and engaging presentations. And you'll learn how to bring it altogether to achieve professional success and land a great job.
