Two Tracks, One Destination: An MPAC is Within Reach

  • Track One of the Master's of Accounting program starts once a year in the fall and is a full-time program. Students can finish Track One in 4 quarters if they take 4 classes per quarter. You can finish in 5 quarters if you take 3 classes per quarter. Track One has internship options which may be completed the summer before the program begins. Please contact graduate admissions at grad-admissions@seattleu.edu if you need a summer start due to an internship.
  • Track Two starts once a year in the fall and is a 7-quarter, part-time program designed for working professionals. There are several prerequisite classes for Track Two that need to be completed before fall start. Internship opportunities are also included as part of Track Two.

  • Evaluate the accounting implications of an economic event by applying the principles, standards, and practices of financial accounting.
  • Advise stakeholders of how strategic business risks relate to internal controls, financial reporting, tax, and/or audit using authoritative literature, fieldwork, surveys, archival, or other research data.
  • Synthesize accounting information within the context of other business functions to inform the business decision-making process.
