About the Program
Entering the Accounting profession today requires more than an undergraduate degree. Virtually every state has adopted the 150-hour education requirement for licensure as a CPA in addition to successful performance on the CPA examination. Loyola's Master of Accounting (MAcc) Program is designed for recent accounting graduates who want immediate, high-quality coursework relevant to the profession to help start their careers without delay. The 30 credit hours earned in the program, when combined with an appropriate undergraduate degree, meet the 150 hours required by many states.
State requirements to become a CPA are found on the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) website: http://nasba.org/stateboards/
We are currently unable to accept applications to the Master of Accounting program from international applicants who will study on an F-1 student visa that is sponsored by Loyola University Maryland.
