Gonzaga University's Master of Accountancy (M.Acc) program prepares students for the rapidly changing accounting environment and the dynamic nature of the profession. Accounting is the language of business and the information provided has the power to drive individual companies and industries as a whole. We recognize the importance that accounting holds in the business marketplace.
Students are challenged to look beyond the numbers and understand the impact of financial information. The hallmarks of our system include a diverse and challenging curriculum, dedicated and knowledgeable faculty, and strong connections to employers in the public and private sector. The accounting program received separate AACSB accreditation in 2009 and is one of only 189 universities worldwide to earn this distinction.
Gonzaga’s Master of Accountancy program has been producing outstanding accountants for over 20 years, and has a record of success that speaks for itself.
