The primary goal of the Master of Accountancy (M.Acc.) program is to provide a quality graduate-level experience that will prepare students for careers in accounting across a wide variety of organizations. The Master of Accountancy degree can assist undergraduate accounting majors in the completion of the requirements to become CPA eligible, as well as help transition students with other undergraduate majors to a career in accounting.

Master of Accountancy students who wish to take the internship course for credit could select, if desired, to earn a Master of Accountancy with an applied option.

Learning Objectives

Students completing the Master of Accountancy shall:

  • possess the skills necessary to become a successful professional in the field of accounting, as demonstrated by research, communication, and analytical skills.
  • possess the skills and professional orientation necessary to become successful professionals in the field of accounting as evidenced by technical competency and ethical awareness.

Prerequisite Courses

To determine if a student will need to take prerequisite courses, a transcript evaluation is conducted at the time of application. Master of Accountancy students must complete twelve credit hours of upper-level accounting beyond principles courses as prerequisites. Normally, prerequisite courses must be completed before enrollment in core or elective courses.

Prerequisite Waiver Policy

Normally, admitted students requiring prerequisite courses will enroll in those courses at The University of Tulsa. However, any of the following may qualify a student for a prerequisite course waiver:

  • Completion, with a grade of B or higher, of a course or courses covering comparable material within the past six years from an AACSB accredited business program or as part of a four-year bachelor’s degree in business administration.
  • Additional coursework, with a grade of B or higher, in the subject area, beyond the principles or introductory courses covering the comparable material.

Prerequisites may be satisfied by traditional classroom courses or online courses.

Satisfactory Progress

A candidate for a Master of Accountancy degree is expected to complete the program in a timely manner. All requirements for the degree must be completed within six years from the date of enrollment in the program. Students who do not make satisfactory progress may be dismissed from the program.


In addition to demonstrating knowledge of and competency in the basic skills and areas of business through completion of or waiver from prerequisite courses, candidates for the Master of Accountancy degree must complete 30 credit hours of advanced study in business.

The core curriculum consists of 6 credit hours of required courses. Students also complete 12-15 credit hours of accounting elective coursework and 9-12 hours of business elective coursework. A thesis is not required for the Master of Accountancy.

A student who selects the “Applied Option” in the Master of Accountancy program will apply business principles in an actual business environment through a formal Collins College of Business internship. In completing all the requirements for the Master of Accountancy, the student must satisfactorily complete an internship course (ACCT 7613 Internship in Accounting) as a requirement. The internship will be secured by the student, but must be approved by the faculty member guiding the internship and by the associate dean.
