Campbell University’s Master of Accountancy Is First In Nation to Offer Financial Planning and Taxation Concentration

Campbell University’s Lundy-Fetterman School of Business is now enrolling students for the Master of Accountancy (MAcc) graduate program beginning in the fall of 2023. The innovative MAcc curriculum is built on Campbell’s 50-year history as the national leader in Trust and Wealth education. 

A Certified Financial Planner (CFP) Board Registered Program, Campbell’s MAcc program is the only one of its kind in the nation that offers students the opportunity to concentrate studies in Financial Planning and Taxation. The MAcc degree program ensures graduates meet the educational requirements to take both the Uniform CPA (Certified Public Accountant) Examination® and the CFP (Certified Financial Planner®) exam.

This unique combination of academic and professional credentials enables graduates to significantly increase their financial expertise and stand out in a competitive job market. Globalization and an increasingly complex tax and regulatory environment are expected to drive a ten percent growth in demand for accounting professionals by 2026. In addition, due to the aging population and the increase in individual retirement accounts, the demand for personal financial advisors is expected to increase by nearly 15 percent through 2026. 

MAcc graduates have the requisite knowledge to fill a wide range of job opportunities that are in high demand, such as careers in public or private accounting; federal, state or local government; not-for-profit organizations; or as a personal financial advisor. To support the transition to the workforce, Campbell provides MAcc students with dedicated staff to assist with internships and job placement, as well as ample opportunities for networking and professional development. 

In addition, MAcc graduates will be prepared for the new format of the CPA exam launching in 2024, which will require students to demonstrate their knowledge in a specific discipline in addition to traditional accounting knowledge. Those new CPA exam disciplines are business analysis and reporting, information systems and controls, and tax compliance and planning. Through studying with Campbell’s distinguished faculty members, MAcc graduates are well-prepared for the tax compliance and planning discipline of the new CPA exam.

With options to attend online, take evening classes at our Campbell Law School campus in downtown Raleigh, or a combination of both, students have maximum flexibility to design a custom schedule that fits their needs. The 12-course, 36-credit hour program can be completed in as quickly as one year; however, a two-year graduation track is also available for those who prefer a slower pace.

Equipping our graduates with job-ready skills in accounting, financial planning, and taxation, the MAcc program demonstrates Campbell
