Two Degree Tracks
There are two degree tracks: the accelerated
four-year/dual-degree option and the traditional, fifth-year degree
The accelerated, four-year/dual degree program
allows students to obtain both an undergraduate accounting degree
and a Master of Professional Accounting degree in four years, while
also qualifying to sit for the CPA exam at the end of the senior
year. During the first three years of coursework, students will
take full undergraduate academic loads in each fall, spring and
summer semesters, including two internships. The fourth year of
coursework consists of MPAcc classes in which students can
specialize in either financial reporting or tax.
This option is available for new incoming students, freshmen or
sophomores. Juniors and seniors should continue on their current
course path and apply for admission to the fifth-year program
during their senior year.
The traditional, fifth-year option adds one year
to the curriculum for Butler accounting majors, resulting in the
Master of Professional Accounting degree. Non-Butler accounting
graduates can complete the program in 1 to 1.5 years. The
MPAcc offers late afternoon and evening classes and can be
completed on a full-time or part-time basis.
The program involves a 30-hour curriculum that includes 17 hours
of core classes plus a 9-hour concentration in financial reporting
or taxation plus 4 hours of electives. These electives may include
the Becker CPA Review Course or an optional international study
trip. Non-Butler accounting graduates may need to complete up to 5
