Ahead of the Pack
Today’s accountant must possess technical competency and be a business leader for clients. Technically, accountants must be proficient in applying professional concepts and principles to a wide variety of existing and emerging situations as an effective member of a team and have the ability to adapt to new standards and methods of doing business. Beyond technical expertise, today’s accountant must be a problem-solver for clients, able to examine complex business issues and not only recommend the appropriate financial and tax accounting, but also help their clients make effective business decisions.
Competing in such an environment requires a solid technical foundation, adeptness in analyzing complex business situations, and the ability to effectively communicate recommended solutions and conclusions. The objectives of our MAcc program include the integration of financial and non-financial data in problem-solving and decision-making, the application of relevant research techniques and information technologies, the integration of varying viewpoints and techniques of conflict resolution, and the importance of adhering to a strong ethical code.
