Master of Accounting (MAcc)
The Jones Graduate School of Business is thrilled to announce the relaunch of the Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree slated for the fall of 2016. The nine-month program totals 30 credit hours of core and elective courses.
Having offered the MAcc from 1975-1997 and with alumni from that program in positions that influence the entire profession, the Jones School is offering an elite, graduate-level accounting degree program designed to build future leaders in the accounting profession.
The school recognizes the increased importance of accounting as it pertains to the overall face of business. In a time when corporate accountability, transparency and reporting are increasing in priority, there is demand for highly-trained accounting professionals with critical thinking skills, integrity, and global leadership experience now more than ever.
There are few schools in the nation with accounting faculty as revered and respected as those currently in the accounting area at the Jones Graduate School of Business. The opportunity to focus the research talent and reputational momentum into an accountancy-focused graduate degree program will allow for the next generation of ethical, competent leaders to emerge in the global accounting profession.
The Master of Accounting degree at Rice University will be unique in its creative approach, blending concepts together so the content of courses and how and by whom they are taught fundamentally impacts the program and the profession.
Through a compelling curriculum of historical, practical and theoretical components in auditing, accounting and all aspects of financial reporting as well as high level instruction in writing and communication, students will gain a unique perspective, just as has been done historically by Rice and the Jones Graduate School of Business through all master’s degree offerings.
