Hey everyone,

I was a finance major in school and taking a couple years to save up money but I'd like to eventually become a CPA. A MACC should satisfy the class prerequisites (only took 9 accounting credit hours in school) and would open a lot of doors in public accounting until then.

I've only seen very vague advice from my Google searches such as "plenty of accounting programs don't require accounting degrees, but some do". Does anyone know of non-online programs that aren't highly biased towards accounting majors or maybe even prefer us? I haven't taken the GMAT yet so I'm at the beginning of my search. I graduated this past May if it matters.

Thanks for any advice!

Most MACC programs don't require an accounting major. Many times, however, there is an accounting major track which is a one year program and a non which is a two year that has more lower level clases the first year that get you up to speed for the same second year classes.
