Elective Courses (12 hours)

All students are required to take four electives (12 hours). Electives provide an opportunity for MAcc students to study areas outside of accounting.  However, one of the four courses must be an accounting course (typically Taxation of Corporations and Partnership if the student did not take the class at the undergraduate level).  The students may select the remaining electives from the areas of finance, marketing, or management. The offering of electives is determined by student demand. Electives are chosen in consultation with and approved by the UTC MAcc adviser.

*Only prior coursework is considered in the waiving of the above courses. In order for the courses to be waived, students must have earned a C or better from an AACSB accredited school and a B or better from a non-AACSB accredited school.
