STEM designated program

The 9-month Master of Accountancy (MACC) program from ASU's W. P. Carey School of Business develop the skills and knowledge you need to launch your accounting career, while opening the door to top hiring firms and preparing you to pass several sections of the CPA exam.

Through case methods and group discussion, you'll not only deepen your knowledge, you'll also strengthen your strategic thinking, decision-making, and communication skills. The School of Accountancy is highly ranked by The Public Accounting Report, and you'll learn from esteemed faculty who bring decades of real-world experience into each class.

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.

Because of the quality of the MACC program, nearly 100 percent of domestic graduates are employed within 90 days of graduation. And with a recent $15 million investment by the W. P. Carey Foundation to bolster career services, you'll have more access to resources, coaching, and employers.
