The application requirements for the Ohio State Master of Accounting program are pretty straightforward and are posted here. You do not need to be an accounting major to successfully apply to this program. However, there are course prerequisites.
The Fisher MAcc program has some specific prerequisite course requirements for admission:
|Must appear on your transcripts at time of application
To be completed by the time you enroll in program if you are admitted
The MAcc admissions committee will review your transcripts to see that you have completed these courses at time of application. The Fisher MAcc admissions committee will accept and review an application from an applicant who has completed only principles of financial accounting and principles of managerial accounting – but will require proof of having completed intermediate financial and managerial accounting prior to being allowed to enroll in the program if you are conditionally admitted. All applicants must show completion of principles of financial accounting and principles of managerial accounting at time of application to be considered for admission.
Conditionally admitted students who need to complete the intermediate financial accounting and intermediate managerial accounting prerequisites can opt to enroll in the PreMAcc Seminar, which is held each summer prior to the start of the fall term. Offered through the Fisher Executive Education office, the not-for-credit 2.5 week PreMAcc Seminar is designed for admitted MAcc students who wish to meet the prerequisites in a very time-efficient fashion.
In addition to the above prerequisites and to be better prepared for the program, the MAcc program recommends the following courses completed (e.g. appear on your transcripts) at the time of application:
