Pre-Master of Accountancy

Does your future include a Master of Accountancy (MAcc)? Begin working toward your future today by enrolling in one of UVM’s Pre-MAcc courses. Each of the courses in our Pre-MAcc Sequence is a prerequisite for UVM’s Master of Accountancy Program. Completion of these courses is required before you can enroll in the MAcc courses.

Applicants to the MAcc must meet these minimum requirements*:

  • Must have a four-year Bachelor’s degree
  • Must have a 2.75 GPA (4.0 scale) overall
  • Must have a 500 score on the GMAT (or the GRE equivalent)

*Applicants lacking the above listed prerequisites may be given provisional admission as they begin this coursework. No more than five years can elapse between satisfaction of the above criteria and application to the program.

Prerequisite courses are offered in a combination of online, evening, and day classes throughout the year. You can start your program at any time.
