Enhance your learning experience with synchronous courses

 

This program is designed with lecture- and case-study-based learning opportunities and emphasizes practical application through projects. Every course will consist of live, virtual participation for at least 50% of the time, creating opportunities for you to interact with faculty and your peers.

When applying to this program, you should ensure you have the time needed to attend virtual sessions at designated meeting times. If you choose the one-year program, you’ll have live course sessions twice a week. If you select the two-year option, you’ll attend one live session a week. Outside of scheduled sessions, you can complete course activities on your own time.

Does this MACC fulfill CPA requirements?

 

This program prepares you to sit for the CPA exam. As a student, you’ll also have access to Becker CPA review materials during and following your program. However, CPA requirements vary by state, and some states may require more than completing a graduate degree in accounting for licensure. For more information on the CPA eligibility requirements in your state, please contact the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA).

Professional licensure and certification

The School of Accountancy prepares graduates for excellence upon entering the workplace. Because certification and licensure requirements vary by profession and state, we recommend you visit our professional licensure page to determine if this program meets the requirements for state licensure or national certifications in the state you intend to practice. If you have questions, please send an email to wpcareyacc@asu.edu.

Will my diploma say ‘online’?

No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.”
