Overview

Leading U.S. accounting firms return to MU year after year to recruit for interns and full-time employees. A recruiter for a leading certified public accountant (CPA) firm stated Manchester “is legendary for producing professionals who do extremely well. The reputation that Manchester has earned is well-deserved and makes it a go-to place for talent.”

Education

A bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Manchester University, in other words, opens a world of entry level opportunities, whether in major corporations or small businesses. And now Manchester is enhancing those opportunities, and the value of a student’s accounting education, by offering a Master’s of Accountancy (MACCT) – a 3+1 program that enables students to enroll in undergraduate and master’s level courses at the same time. 

This allows students to earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees in four years instead of five, eliminating a year of increased costs and lost earnings. In addition, because MACCT students will be full-time undergraduate students, they will retain all their undergraduate financial aid – making Manchester’s MACCT much more affordable than other programs.

Career

Manchester University ’s College of Business programs prepare students for a wide variety of business careers, and students acquire the knowledge, experience, skills, and global perspective needed to be well prepared for the competitive job market.

Manchester is widely recognized for its Accounting Program, which has been one of the best in the Midwest for decades. Because of the program’s reputation for excellence, some of the most respected accounting firms in the United States recruit here, tapping Manchester students for internships and full-time employment. Upon graduating, most accounting students from Manchester begin their careers in the field of public accounting.
