Accounting Admissions

Admission for the Masters of Accounting Program

Admission is based on the candidate’s undergraduate grade point average, GMAT, a personal statement, and two references.

Applicants must produce evidence of successful completion of the following basic
accounting core courses or equivalent:

  • AC 210 Financial Accounting
  • AC 211 Managerial Accounting
  • AC 320-321 Financial Reporting Theory I-II
  • AC 325 Accounting Information Systems
  • AC 332 Cost Management
  • AC 425 Federal Income Tax Concepts
  • AC 430 Auditing Concepts and Problems

The above accounting core courses must have been taken at a four-year, accredited college or university, at the junior/senior level. Applicants who have not met the above
accounting core requirements will be expected to complete successfully, with a minimum 3.0 GPA, the requirements at the start of their program. Applicants who have passed the CPA examination will receive an automatic waiver of the above requirements.

To receive the degree, students must complete all program requirements with a minimum
grade point average of 3.0 and no more than one grade below B in the courses beyond the basic accounting core courses.

Admission to the Barney School is competitive and selective. Students are admitted at the beginning of the fall, spring, and summer terms. Applications should be received by the specified deadline of the term for which the student is seeking admission. Applications are reviewed continuously; candidates may expect an answer shortly after their application materials are complete.
