On campus or online, our curriculum is designed to prepare you to succeed in all aspects of your accounting career.
Whether pursued on campus and in-person or taken entirely online, the Jenkins Master of Accounting (MAC) curriculum is designed to provide a broad understanding of accounting and business practices and a rigorous technical education — the perfect combination for professional success.
All students will complete our core accounting curriculum and their choice of business electives. Students have the opportunity to focus their education by choosing one of our three optional specializations: enterprise risk management, information technology or tax strategy. These specializations provide an additional depth of knowledge that can give students a leg up as they enter their chosen profession.
Through tailored mentoring sessions and group projects, my professors and peers at Poole were instrumental in encouraging me to launch into an ever-evolving industry.

Real-World and Global Experience
In the Jenkins MAC program, we believe you shouldn’t wait until after you complete your education to experience life after graduation. That’s why we bring the real world into the classroom.
Through practicums and other experiential learning opportunities, students in the program work hand-in-hand with corporate, public accounting, government and nonprofit partners to find solutions to real business challenges and facilitate learning. The Department of Accounting and the Jenkins MAC program have long-standing relationships with Big Four and national professional service firms, local and regional accounting firms, and major corporations in a variety of industries. Accounting and business professionals from the community interact with students and faculty and participate in class lectures, workshops and club activities.
And these real-world experiences aren’t confined to U.S. borders. Jenkins MAC students have the opportunity to study abroad in France, Germany and the Czech Republic. While earning credits toward a MAC degree, students enjoy the history and culture that these countries offer.
