Please take great care in crafting your statement of purpose and do not have others write them for you. The statement of purpose is your best opportunity to provide the admissions staff with real insight into your personality, values, as well as breadth and depth of education and experiences. There are no right or wrong answers, but there are good and bad statements. We read them carefully for originality and logic of thought, creativity of expression, and correctness of syntax and spelling.
- One recommendation (Register recommender online via MAcc program application)
We prefer that the recommendation is from an accounting professor who has taught an applicant in a major class preferably a junior- or senior-level accounting class and not an introductory accounting class. The recommendation should address the applicant’s intellectual capacity, motivation, work ethic and maturity.
You can submit your program application BEFORE your recommendation has been received.

Resumes must include the month and year for position duration (for example, "January 2018–October 2020: Account Representative").
