At the University of Oregon's Master of Accounting program at the Lundquist College of Business, students develop a mindset that goes beyond learning new accounting methods and tax laws. They hone their ability to work in a constructive and respectful way. They learn how to communicate attention to detail through precise and engaging presentations. And they bring it all together to achieve true professional success to land a great job.

The Master of Accounting program is designed for students whose undergraduate major is accounting or the equivalent. The program is constructed so that it can be completed in three terms (one academic year) of full-time study. The curriculum is designed to sharpen written and oral communication, leadership, critical thinking, and analytical skills that are needed to excel in the accounting profession.
