This fall, the Carlson School will offer the fifth year of its Master of Accountancy Program (MAcc). The program was created in 2006, in response to legislation requiring 150 semester hours of education for accountants to be licensed as CPAs in Minnesota.
        “The MAcc was created to provide students the option of a graduate program for their fifth year,” says MAcc Program Director Larry Kallio. “We developed a one-year, 30-credit masters program that is a combination of classes from our MBA program, MBT (Master of Business Taxation), and MAcc. MAcc students take classes in accounting, finance, tax, management, marketing, and technology.”
        A big boost to this program has been the active involvement from partners and executives from the business community, either with philanthropic support or in providing class material and serving as guest speakers in MAcc courses. “The students love it because they are talking directly with business executives on current issues,” Kallio says. “Our speakers from the business community provide ‘live’ case studies in the classroom.”
