What will I learn?

Program Purpose

Students planning to take the CPA exam in Ohio and in most other states are required to have 150 hours of education with at least a bachelor's degree. This requires additional education beyond the requirements for a bachelor's degree from Miami.

High achieving students have the option of pursuing a combined degree program in which you can earn both your bachelor's and master's degrees in accountancy within four years. After completing the program, you are qualified to sit for the CPA examination in the state of Ohio and most other states that have adopted the 150-hour education requirement.

Student Classification and Graduation

Students in a combined program will remain as undergraduates until they apply for graduation or submit a request to the Graduate School to have their classification changed from undergraduate to graduate. Students must have completed a minimum of 128 hours to be classified as a graduate student (note: this change in classification will affect eligibility for financial aid).

Students may receive their bachelor's degree prior to completing their master's degree. Upon receiving the bachelor's degree, students will automatically be classified as graduate students.

Students in the combined program can count up to eight hours of graduate coursework toward their bachelor's degree with permission of the appropriate advisor(s) and dean(s) or their designee(s). Those hours can also count toward the completion of their master's degree. For B.S./MAcc candidates, the senior-level accountancy coursework and the undergraduate business elective requirement can be satisfied with MAcc coursework.
