Earn your accounting degree from one of the most respected programs in the Midwest. Through hands-on experiences and leadership opportunities, you'll be prepared to start your career immediately upon graduation. Leading accounting firms know the value of a Manchester degree and return to MU year after year to recruit employees.

New! Make it a Master's!

Now Manchester offers a Master’s of Accountancy (MACCT) – a 3+1 program in which you enroll in undergraduate and master’s level courses at the same time, earning both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in four years instead of five. Because you'll qualify as an undergraduate student, you'll retain your financial aid, as well as eliminate a year of increased costs and lost earnings – making Manchester’s MACCT more affordable than other programs.
