Master of Accounting with Emphasis in Data and Analytics


The Master of Accounting with Data and Analytics (MAcc D+A) delivers a firm foundation in accounting, audit and financial reporting with a focus on Data and Analytics and the enabling of IT capabilities.  

We will address the financial statement audit process in today’s evolving and complex environment.  That environment demands great thinking about business, financial and audit issues.  It includes sophisticated IT systems and demands leading edge processes to understand and interact with those systems.  Data is far more plentiful than ever before and requires understanding of how to capture it, analyze it, draw conclusions from it and present those conclusions to disparate audiences.  More than anything else, we want to teach our students to react to quick and constant change in varied environments and to thoughtfully develop solutions in the world of business, accounting, auditing and data analysis in order to be the leaders of the next generation.

“We are thrilled to conduct this groundbreaking program which is innovating at the forefront of technological change to prepare accounting students for the demands of professional practice.  The program offers a state-of-the-art curriculum and set of experiences that put our students on a path to long-term success.”

- William W. Holder, Dean of USC Leventhal
