Master of Accounting Fast Track Senior Start for Loyola Students
Loyola University Maryland undergraduates who are admitted via Fast Track admission to the Master of Accounting (MAcc) program may select a “Senior Start” option. This allows students to take a MAcc class in each senior semester if the student has been admitted to the program before the start of that semester.
