Master of Accounting Curriculum

Tulane's Master of Accounting program has an industry-endorsed curriculum designed to be flexible, allowing students to tailor their education to their personal and professional goals. All students will work closely with a faculty advisor to design an individual course of study. The program requires completion of 30 credit hours and can be completed in two or three semesters.

Core courses can be waived if the student successfully completed prior academic work covering substantially the same material. Course waivers must be approved before enrollment by the MACCT faculty advisor. Any core courses waived must be replaced with approved electives to meet the 30 credit hour requirement. 





Tulane's Master of Accounting program provides specializations that allow students to tap into the expertise of Freeman’s stellar faculty, both within accounting and in other areas, to craft an interdisciplinary education or to deepen their knowledge in a specific area of accounting. All MACCT students work one-on-one with their faculty advisor to develop a course of study appropriate for their academic preparation, interests and career goals.

Students’ ability to pursue a specialization will depend on their background in accounting. While no specialization is required, the expertise gained by completing a specialization will help students stand out to potential employers in the job market.
