USC Leventhal’s master’s programs are highly selective: we receive more than 1,000 applications and accept about 160 students, 25 to 30 percent of whom are our own undergraduates and the rest from at least 75 U.S. and international universities. We offer merit and diversity scholarships and an eight-week Summer Intensive program for non-accounting majors. Highly successful career placement (90 percent) is another advantage of a graduate degree from Leventhal.
USC Leventhal offers four master’s programs to accommodate the diversity of backgrounds and educational pursuits of our students. All qualify students to take the Uniform CPA Exam:
- Master of Accounting (MAcc)
The MAcc program is a full-time, one-year program in which students study accounting in greater depth than is typically provided in an undergraduate accounting program or MBA program with a concentration in accounting. Completion of the program qualifies students to sit for the Uniform CPA Exam.
- Master of Accounting (MAcc D+A)
The MAcc with an Emphasis on Data Analytics is a full time, one-year course of study which introduces students to the types of technologies that are fundamentally changing the way audits are conducted. An audit internship in the Spring semester is a critical piece of the curriculum - building a bridge for the student between his or her academic and work life, ultimately enriching both.
- Master of Business Taxation (MBT)
The MBT program is a full-time, one-year program that provides a broad understanding of taxation, an appreciation for the complexities of decision-making, and practice in explaining the tax implications of various courses of action. Completion of the program qualifies students to sit for the Uniform CPA Exam.
- Master of Business Taxation - Working Professionals (MBT.WP) On-Campus and Online
The MBT-Working Professionals program is a part-time, evening program designed specifically for students who wish to remain fully employed while pursuing their graduate studies. This program provides the same rigorous curriculum as the full-time program. Most students complete the program in two to three years.
