About this program


Graduates and current students both tout the Master of Accountancy ( program as a challenging academic regimen that offers preparation for the Certified Public Accountant exam, while at the same time incorporating relevant real-world examples that equip them for the work force. Students praise professors in the department for their approachability. “While they have powerful positions, they remain humble enough to make students a priority,” says Phylicia Coleman, a recent graduate, who works as an auditor in the Nashville office of Deloitte & Touche, LLP. Another recent graduate, Duresha Rice, offers the following about her accounting professors: “They want to see every student succeed and become successful.” After graduating, Rice began her career at Faulkner, Mackie and Cochran, P.C., as an external auditor. “Thanks to the accounting department at MTSU, I have secured a position with the Tennessee Department of Audit,” says former master’s student Adria Bakke., These powerful testimonies from current and former students illustrate how the program prepares students for professional jobs in accounting and other related fields.
