What to Expect
While the technical material will be delivered primarily in a lecture format, the majority of the learning will be through application of knowledge and in-class discussion. Team-based learning will be encouraged in most courses. Classes are kept small, with ~30 students admitted each year, allowing you to work closely and build strong relationships with your classmates. Case studies will be used extensively and guest speakers will be brought in to enhance the learning experience.
The Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree at the University of Alberta covers all the material of the Professional Education Program as well as supporting courses in Strategy, Negotiations, and Project Management. These courses help round out your overall knowledge base and are areas identified by employers as key skills. This gives you an advantage and helps you stand out amongst your peers. Since the MAcc program is completely accredited by CPA, students are eligible to write the Common Final Exam (CFE) immediately following the completion of the MAcc program.
