Finance BBA/Accounting MAcc

Students will be eligible to sit for the CPA exam and could pursue either public accounting or consulting and advisory positions following completion of the program. They would also be eligible to continue into a business Ph.D. program or law school, among other academic opportunities.

Admission to Program

Following admission to Terry, a student would apply to Tull for admission into the BBA/MAcc in their first semester of their third year.

To be eligible, students would be required to earn a score of 70 or higher on the Accounting Entrance Exam, consistent with our minimum requirement for admission to the Accounting BBA program.
