Business and Accounting Prerequisites

The Montana MAcct curriculum builds on foundational business and accounting concepts (prerequisites). These can be completed before or after admission to the program but must be completed prior to taking graduate accounting and some elective courses.

Business prerequisites include coursework in economics, statistics, management, marketing, business law, finance, operations management, and information systems. Accounting prerequisites include coursework in financial, cost/managerial, taxation, accounting information systems, auditing, and government/nonprofit accounting. The MAcct Director evaluates all transcripts for prerequisite deficiencies.
