Accounting in the real world looks remarkably different than what you may have experienced in undergrad. You don’t always have complete data. Business problems aren’t always well-defined.

In this way, the Master of Accountancy, offered by The University of Iowa, prepares you for your first day on the job in ways that undergraduate courses cannot. You’ll walk away with higher-level skills, and experience problem solving in a manner that simulates the real world.
