Suggested MAcc Concentrations

MAcc students must complete five elective courses, described below. Three elective courses should come from courses comprising a concentration in either Financial Reporting/Auditing or Tax. Two additional electives are required.

Financial Reporting/Auditing Concentration

  • ACC 619, 620, and 635

Tax Concentration

  • ACC  631, 638, and 639 
    - (Acc 638 and 639 usually alternate every other summer)

Additional Electives

The two additional electives can come from either the Tax or Financial Reporting/Auditing concentration or the following:

  • ACC 690 or 695 (Internship - often very helpful)
  • 400 to 600 level courses from the Shidler College of Business
    (BLW, FIN, ITM, MGT, MKT, RE), UH-Manoa Richardson School of Law, or Communicology (formerly Speech).

    • MAcc students may enroll in a maximum of four 400-level courses (12 credits) for course credit. Because two of these courses are required core courses, only two 400-level courses may taken as elective courses.

    • MAcc electives do NOT include MBA core classes, such as:
      (BUS 610-629, 695, and 696B/C, MGT 650 or HRM 668).

    • MAcc students may transfer up to nine credit hours of equivalent graduate-level coursework (600-800 level) from an AACSB-accredited program (if "B" or better) with the approval of the SOA Director and Shidler College Master Programs Director, and requested before the start of the second semester.
