The Pre-MAcc Seminar will focus on technical accounting knowledge. The knowledge and training that students gain in this non-credit seminar will enhance their ability to perform successfully in the required and elective courses for the Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree at The Ohio State University's Fisher College of Business.

In addition, the Pre-MAcc Seminar will accelerate preparation for the CPA examination. Key U.S. financial accounting concepts that are relevant to the coursework in the MAcc degree and the CPA examination will be covered.

I would not have achieved my accomplishments, both in recruiting and in the classroom, without spending those few weeks intensively studying accounting.”
