The Master of Accounting Science (MAS) program prepares students for entry into both non-public and public accountancy careers through advanced study in an accountancy graduate program. This program includes preparation for the 150-hour requirement and the 30 accountancy credit hour requirement to be a candidate for the CPA examination in the State of Illinois.

Admission to the Master of Accounting Science (MAS) program depends upon whether a student will have completed the undergraduate accountancy curriculum at ILLINOIS (i.e., ACCY 301, 302, 303, 304, 312, 405/415, and a 400-level ACCY elective), or the equivalent at an accredited U.S. institution.

Students who are seeking a master’s in accountancy that do not meet the requirements above should refer to the Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) Program for information on the admission process and degree requirements.
