Master of Accountancy and Data Analytics

The 9-month Master of Accountancy and Data Analytics (MACC) program from ASU's W. P. Carey School of Business is among a select group of accounting master’s programs that offers a data and analytics emphasis. Develop the skills and knowledge you need to launch your accounting career, while opening the door to top hiring firms and preparing to pass several sections of the CPA exam.

As a STEM-designated program, eligible MACC graduates on student visas have access to an Optional Practical Training (OPT) extension for up to 36 months. This longer work authorization term may help international students gain additional real-world skills and experience in the U.S.
