What is the program structure?

  • Full-time, cohort-based, two-semester program
    • Classes are held in Rice’s business school building, McNair Hall, mostly during daytime hours
  • Just 10 months of coursework – August through May – to launch a career in business
    • Plus, for students who need to catch up on prerequisite courses, a pre-term summer session
  • Curriculum tailored for students with non-accounting undergraduate academic backgrounds
  • Challenging coursework taught by world-class accounting faculty
  • Understanding the intersection of public policy and accounting is key to succeeding in an ever-evolving business and regulatory world. So, all Rice MAcc students engage in a week-long, off-campus course illustrating the intersection of public policy and accounting
  • Gain not only the technical knowledge needed to pass the CPA exam, but also an interdisciplinary understanding of how business and accounting interact
    • Rice MAcc students typically sit for the CPA exam during the summer after their graduation
