By Tre Mask – On February 6 several Jewell Accounting Majors attended The University of Kansas MAcc (Master of Accounting) Program Meeting and Career Expo. In addition to conversing with representatives from KU, Jewell students had the opportunity to network with over twenty professional accounting firms and businesses. Students were provided detailed information about the KU MAcc program, summer leadership events and internship opportunities.
Under an agreement between William Jewell College and The University of Kansas, Jewell students now have direct access to KU’s Master of Accounting program. In order for Jewell students to be admitted to this program they must have an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher.
Once admitted, students must complete one year of study at KU. The KU MAcc program offers four different tracks of coursework (i.e. Advising and Consulting Services, Assurance, Corporate and Tax). Each track is 30 credit hours in length. Additionally, this one-year program provides students with rich experiential learning opportunities such as an accounting internship or study abroad for a week in South America or Europe as well as rigorous preparation for the CPA exam.
Senior Accounting Major Jared Hobby (who was recently accepted to the program) explained that he believes completing his KU MAcc degree would help him expand his education, prepare him for the CPA exam and introduce him to many professionals in the field.
