Business and Accounting Prerequisites

We welcome students from non-accounting undergraduate backgrounds into our program. The Montana MAcct curriculum builds on foundational business and accounting concepts (prerequisites). Students making a transition to accounting can complete prerequisites before or after admission to the program but prerequisites 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 Graduate Programs Director ( evaluates all transcripts for necessary prerequisites.
