At The University of Iowa, we offer a Master of Accounting degree. These days, accountants have a seat at the management table. That seat means you need to understand how other areas of the business work, like marketing and production. Ideal for careers in management/cost accounting, controller’s office, and manufacturing consulting.


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 Accounting, 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.
