​The combined Bachelor's/Master's degree programs allow students to complete 12 graduate credit hours while still undergraduates. These three graduate level courses will count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

The Five-Year Accountancy Program allows Strobel Honors majors to complete a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Accountancy (MACC) degree in five years. The graduate degree provides students with advanced skills in accounting in areas of high demand: internal audit, forensic accounting, and accounting information systems.

Admission Requirements

Current DePaul accountancy majors who meet the following criteria may apply to this program:

  • Junior standing or higher (at least 88.0 credits)
  • A minimum cumulative DePaul grade point average of 3.200
  • A minimum Accountancy (ACC) grade point average of 3.000

Admission to the five year program does not require the GMAT, essays, or letters of recommendation. Students should apply for program admission while enrolled in ACC 305, 372, or 380.

Classes During Senior Year

In the five year program, students will take three graduate classes during the senior year. These three classes will count toward the bachelor’s degree as indicated below. Students should note that requirements for graduate classes are more rigorous.

Students in the Strobel Honors Program should check with the School of Accountancy for scheduling of the graduate level courses.

During the final quarter of the bachelor’s degree, students must petition for formal admission into the graduate school of business. The admission criteria are as follows:

  • Completion of the Bachelor of Science in Business with a major in Accountancy
  • A minimum cumulative DePaul grade point average of 3.200
  • A minimum Accountancy (ACC) grade point average of 3.000

After Senior Year

After completion of ACC 545, 550, and 551 and the awarding of the BSB, students take nine additional graduate classes to complete the graduate degree, for a total of twelve graduate classes. Information on the MACC degree is found in the graduate catalog.
