The Comprehensive Preparation and Flexibility You Need
The MAcc degree program at the Wisconsin School of Business has been carefully constructed to provide you with an effective combination of technical knowledge, professional insights, and actual industry experience through a paid internship. We combine this approach with a flexibility that makes the program accessible to students from a wide range of backgrounds. The program is adaptable to those who wish to study abroad as a UW–Madison undergraduate, transfer into the IMAcc program from another institution, or arrange for other special circumstances. If you bring a commitment to an accounting career and believe the program may be a good fit, we welcome the opportunity to work with you.
Relevant, High-Impact Internships
Students in both the IMAcc program and the GMAcc program have an opportunity to complete a paid internship. By providing you with hands-on experience, the internship adds real-world insights to the knowledge you gain in the classroom. The Wisconsin MAcc degree program has ongoing relationships with preferred employers, including public accounting firms and corporations with in-house accounting functions. We use these relationships to establish connections between employers and students.
Professionalism Sets Our Students Apart
Employers value graduates who demonstrate professionalism and a well-rounded understanding of ethical issues. The Wisconsin MAcc degree program puts considerable emphasis in these areas, offering a professional development conference delivered by program alumni, and a three-week professional issues course in which IMAcc students examine relevant audit, tax, and financial reporting issues. High-profile industry speakers join students in the classroom to share their professional experiences and discuss challenges they have faced. The Accounting Department also maintains an Ethics and Professionalism program that invites regular student engagement.
