    The Master of Accounting Program is an innovative curriculum featuring learning and delivery systems designed for adult working professionals in the field of accounting, as well as entry-level students interested in developing a career in accounting. The program curriculum is designed to provide students with greater depth and breadth in professional courses in accounting than is possible in other programs. In addition, it is intended to prepare students to enter or further careers as professional accountants in financial institutions, government, industry, nonprofit organizations, and public practice. The program includes courses utilizing modern computer applications in accounting procedures and general business.

    The Electronic Master of Accounting Program (eMACC) uses innovative emerging Internet technology, redefining the concept of a classroom and of distance education. The eMACC supports the university mission of offering academic programs at times convenient to students, employing innovative delivery systems, and rich learning resources on campus and at distant sites. The program has adopted all the rigors of our weekend accounting program, including identical learning outcomes, virtually the same syllabi and textbook requirements, identical distance library resources, and the same faculty pool. The eMACC Program curriculum and admission requirements are identical to the weekend accounting program, except for the delivery method, which utilizes both synchronous and asynchronous communication.

    A total of 40 graduate credits are required for completion of the eMACC program. Generally students enroll in two courses per three-month term. Faculty use synchronous and asynchronous delivery methods for all courses including bulletin boards, email, and chat rooms. In addition, faculty provide power point slides, lecture notes, on-line library assignments, sample practice exams, samples cases, and links to textbook Web page notes and interesting Web pages to provide a rich learning environment.


    The Master of Accounting Program emphasizes concepts, skills, and methodology vital to the accounting profession for those students interested in public, corporate, or institutional accounting. The curriculum includes courses that provide a managerial perspective to the accounting profession, knowledge that is increasingly vital to all types of organizations. The overriding goal of the program is to provide the appropriate skills that successful accountants need as preparers of financial reports and as decision makers.

The university's bookstore provides the full-spectrum of shipping options. The school insures that required textbooks are available, and then posts them on its website at least one month prior to the start of each term. Students should place their orders early enough to ensure delivery prior to the start of the term.
    The Office of Student Financial Assistance administers the university抯 financial aid programs of grants, loans, scholarships, and student employment and provides professional financial advisers to help students plan for the most efficient use of their financial resources for education.

    The Huizenga School will consider up to the equivalent of two courses as transfer credits (equal to six semester credits) taken at the master抯 level or two courses (eight semester credits) taken at the doctoral level (with grades of not less than B) from another regionally accredited institution. Courses that have been applied toward another degree, the course content and credits are not equivalent of courses offered in the student抯 degree program, or the courses have been taken more than five-years before matriculation will not be accepted. Applications for approval of transfer credit must be made in writing to the Office of Enrollment Services at the time of application.

    Non-degree seeking students - Students submitting applications to the Huizenga School who do not intend to complete a degree program must adhere to identical admission and academic standards as degree-seeking students. Non-degree seeking students are only permitted to complete the greater of two classes (or six credits) at the master's level, or two classes.
    For the Master of Accounting program, all program prerequisite must be completed before taking graduate courses. It is recommended that students speak to an enrollment counselor prior to taking classes so that a course schedule may be mapped out, especially those students wishing to sit for the CPA exam prior to program completion.

(2) They may successfully complete a proficiency examination administered by a testing organization that has national recognition, such as CLEP or DANTES. (3) They may successfully complete online prerequisite courses offered by the Huizenga School.
