Freeman's Master of Accounting program is custom designed to enable the student to sit for the CPA in the state of their choice. Each MACCT student will meet with a faculty advisor to develop a curriculum that specifically meets the needs of the student to complete MACCT requirements, and to enable the student to sit for the CPA examination in the state of intended practice. Graduates of the program must be qualified to sit for the CPA in order to receive their degree. While considerable flexibility exists in selection of courses, individual state requirements may restrict the elective opportunities or increase the individual requirements for completion of the MACCT degree.
