There has never been a greater need for leadership and integrity in the accounting profession than now. The Master of Professional Accounting (MPAcc) Program at the University of Washington Michael G. Foster School of Business responds by preparing accounting professionals with quality education, strong ethics, innovative thinking, and excellent oral and written communication skills.
Expand your professional expertise
The three-quarter-long, full-time professional master’s degree program provides accounting students with an opportunity to complete additional education beyond the bachelor’s degree required to sit for the CPA exam in the State of Washington. MPAcc graduates are encouraged to seek challenges, strive for excellence, and show pride in their accomplishments. They develop the ability to work both independently and as contributing team members.
Pursue one of two MPAcc degree tracks:
Auditing and Assurance
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
