Dual Degrees 
MBA/ Master of Accounting

The College of William and Mary's Mason School of Business offers a joint MBA/ MAcc option in which students may obtain both the MBA degree and the Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree in 2 1/2 years, instead of the three years that would be required if each degree were pursued independently.

The program is designed especially for non-accounting majors who intend to seek the CPA credential as part of their professional preparation. The joint program provides a student both the comprehensive accounting education needed to qualify to sit for the licensing exam and a broad-based, well rounded business education.
