The Villanova School of Business is excited to announce that, beginning in Fall 2018, our Masters in Accountancy (MAC) degree will become a full-time, year-long academic program. The inaugural cohort for the new format will begin in August 2018 and graduate in May 2019. Concurrent with the change in format, the MAC curriculum has been enhanced to include data and analytics, elective course offerings, as well as further professional opportunities. Whether in auditing, advising or corporate finance, our enriched curriculum will be designed to prepare students for an ever-changing, fast-paced corporate marketplace.
Additional details on the revised curriculum and class schedule will be available soon, so please check back in Fall 2017 for these exciting programmatic changes as well as to access the MAC application for Fall 2018. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Are you prepared to graduate with all 150 credit hours necessary to be eligible to earn your CPA license, or are you looking to transition into a career in accounting and need the academic foundation necessary to succeed? At VSB, the Master of Accountancy (MAC) program is designed to meet both of those needs.
The comprehensive curriculum integrates a wide range of topics to enhance students’ accounting and business backgrounds—and to help meet the real-world, real-time challenges of global business and the accounting industry.
When combined with an appropriate undergraduate degree, the 30-credit MAC program (10 courses) will provide you with the 150 credit hours required by most states.
Recently, VSB partnered with KPMG to announce a specialized master’s degree in Accounting with Analytics. Created to develop auditors suited for the big data age, the program will drive students to think critically and develop problem-solving and analytical skills. The program combines practical use of modern analytics technology and data sets with real-world experiences on KPMG teams auditing some of the world’s largest companies.
Currently, this program is only available to select students from KPMG’s incoming class of new hires. Students should refer to their KPMG recruiter for more information on the application and admission process. Other interested students are encouraged to learn more about the Villanova MAC program, which will also include analytics as part of its curriculum. The program is currently being revised and the new curriculum will soon be posted on the website.
