The Accountancy program offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is a one-year program for students who have completed or are pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from a regionally accredited U.S. institution.



Each Accountancy student at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign will select either a Taxation or Audit Option as a primary focus. Each Option (listed below) includes room for graduate electives. By design, the program emphasizes the emerging trend of data analytics in the practice of accounting, with a standard course plan that leads to a graduate concentration in data analytics in accountancy to fulfill the graduate electives. Students have the choice of remaining in the standard course plan or selecting from among the following alternative graduate concentrations to fulfill the graduate elective requirement: finance, corporate governance and international business, information technology and control, real estate, and supply chain management. Students who wish to deviate from the standard course plan, but do not wish to pursue a listed graduate concentration, may petition to take other graduate courses of interest subject to approval of an Accountancy Advisor. Admission to a concentration requires application to the Department no later than February 1 for fall admission. Admission to some concentrations may be competitive.
