Master in Accounting Taxation Concentration

Program Description

For those who want a Masters in Accounting, but want to specialize in the area of tax, Florida Atlantic University offers a Masters in Accounting with a Concentration in Tax. The Master in Accounting Taxation Concentration [MAC (TAX)] program lays the educational foundation for professional and career goals, including, but not limited, to the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. The Master in Accounting Taxation Concentration is designed to prepare graduates for careers in public accounting, industry, and government. The Master in Accounting Taxation Concentration program is committed to providing academic and cultural diversity as well as a progressive learning experience. It emphasizes the building of skills necessary to succeed in the business community, including teamwork, leadership, and the ability to communicate effectively. MAC (TAX) students must substitute their accounting elective and their three program electives for four approved tax courses.

The School of Accounting gives students an opportunity to earn a MAC (TAX) degree primarily through traditional live interactive classrooms. Most classes meet weekly on Monday – Thursday evenings, with occasional daytime classes. Most classes meet in Boca Raton, on our main campus; however, a few classes may meet on our Davie campus.

Understanding that our students lead busy lives, many of our courses are offered online through e-learning courses. While these online offerings are intended to provide additional flexibility to our students, the Flexible MAC (TAX) is not designed to be completed solely online. If an online degree is desired, our Executive MAC is designed to be completed solely online and interested candidates should consider that program.

The Master of Taxation degree program is selective. Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to the program. Students who have an undergraduate degree in accounting or other business area are preferable to those who do not have such degrees. Students who have been dismissed from any traditional (non-Executive) MAC or TAX program are not eligible for re-admission.

Admission Requirements

  • Applicants to either the traditional (i.e., non-executive) Master of Accounting or the traditional Master of Taxation degree programs may be accepted into the programs without having to take the GMAT/GRE if they hold an undergraduate degree in accounting from a College of Business accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and have earned a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) overall and in their accounting courses.
  • If the applicant's overall GPA and accounting GPA is below 3.50, and the applicant still wants to be considered, the applicant may be requested to write an explanation as to why the applicant's GPA is not 3.50 or higher and, after considering the applicant's reasons for the lower-than-expected GPA, may be required to take the GMAT/GRE as a condition of further consideration.
