The School of Business has offered a Masters of Accountancy (MAcc) degree for over 18 years. The MAcc was established to satisfy Utah’s requirement of 150 hours to take the Certified Public Accounting exam. The MAcc degree is designed to satisfy the 150-hour requirement with 30 hours of post-graduate education.
The graduate program provides greater breadth and depth to further develop the knowledge and skills to enter professional accountancy. With nearly a 100 percent placement rate, most MAcc graduates are employed by accounting firms or government agencies in Utah, Nevada, and California. Typical jobs include positions in taxation, auditing, and controllership.
Southern Utah University offers graduate course work online and at Dixie State College with all of the classes you need to get your MAcc. SUU's MAcc classes are offered live and online. You may complete the program in as little as two semesters with online courses. This program provides a course of study to meet your St. George lifestyle and your University interests.

"Coming to SUU to earn a MAcc is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have been impressed with how much my professors care about my future success. I know that the professors at SUU have prepared me to start my career, and I am confident that I am just as prepared, if not better prepared than students from other universities. The Professional Accountancy Club at SUU is one of the best run clubs I have ever been a part of. PAC has spent a lot of time building relationships with future employers. I am grateful for the opportunities that PAC gave me to network with future employers, and I know that PAC helped me to secure a job with Deloitte in Las Vegas, while still in my undergrad."
