The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program is targeted toward recent graduates from bachelors in accounting programs, as well as young professionals working in public accounting firms (within their first three years).
The demand for flexible, high quality accounting education at the masters level is at an all-time high, and is expected to continue growing at a rapid rate. Such growth is fueled by two key market dynamics
most State Boards of Accountancy now require candidates to fulfill 150 credit hours in order to obtain a license (for most CPA candidates who are bachelors degree holders, this means at least 30 credit hours of extra coursework is necessary), and
current hiring by public accounting firms is not only at a record high, but continued growth is projected.
The 30 credit-hour MAcc program takes a real-world and comprehensive approach to develop qualitative, analytical, and soft skills that are immediately applicable to professional accounting roles - https://www.scranton.edu/academics/graduate-education/programs/ksom/accounting/accountancy.shtml
