Applicants are accepted on a rolling basis. The MAP Program is lock-step, with the required course sequence beginning in the fall semester. All prerequisite work must be completed prior to the fall semester. Prerequisite courses and some required courses may be taken during the preceding spring or summer sessions.

Admissions Requirements:

  1. Application Fee: A $75 application fee is due when you submit your online application. Waivers are available for qualified students.
  2. Bachelor’s Degree: A four-year bachelor’s degree in any academic field (except accounting degrees from US institutions) from an accredited college or university is required. If you have a three-year non-US degree, you may request a review for determination as to equivalency. Please note that students with undergraduate degrees in accounting from US institutions will not be accepted to the MAP degree, those students should instead apply to the MS in Accounting degree program.
  3. Transcripts: Unofficial transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate coursework is required with your application. Do not mail official transcripts during the applicant stage. An English translation must accompany transcripts issued in a language other than English. Undergraduate GPA is considered in the admissions decision.

However, the MAP program has as prerequisites the equivalent of introductory financial accounting (three-credit equivalent) and introductory managerial accounting (three-credit equivalent).

Courses taken to fulfill the prerequisites will not count towards fulfilling the 33 credit hour requirement of the MAP.

Alternatively a GRE overall score of 306 or above with a Quantitative score of 155, Verbal score of 151, and Analytical Writing score of 4 is accepted.
