The UM Master of Accounting (MAcc) program offers the high degree of concentration in financial and managerial accounting, auditing and systems demanded of accounting professionals in public accountancy and industry today. It is among just a handful of such programs across the nation to be fully accredited by AACSB International, the leading accrediting body for business schools worldwide.
The MAcc program is ideal for those who seek employment with public accounting firms as auditors, or with industry or government as accounting and information specialists. Emphasis is placed on the development and ongoing evolution of generally accepted accounting principles and auditing standards, product costing trends and issues and familiarization with computer information systems as an important tool of the accounting professional. Students can complete the MAcc program in two semesters of full-time study.

Through the generosity of alumni and friends of the University of Miami School of Business Administration, certain endowed and annual scholarships are made available to graduate students enrolled in Accounting-related degree programs. Donors have established endowed scholarships in perpetuity; annual scholarships depend upon annual funding from donors.Donor scholarships are for the purpose of recruiting, retaining or recognizing students of high academic merit. For certain donor scholarships, financial need is an additional consideration. The number and amount of scholarship awards may vary from year to year.Donor scholarships are generally awarded to full-time students. However, due to the “fifth year” educational requirement to qualify for CPA certification, part-time graduate students enrolled in an accounting-related degree program may be considered for donor scholarships administered by the Department of Accounting. The following is a list of the Department scholarships available:
