Take your accounting career to the next level with Rider’s Master of Accountancy program, one of only two schools in New Jersey with AACSB accreditation in accounting.

You’ll develop the required technical competencies you need and meet evolving credit-hour requirements for licensure in the rapidly changing accounting field. You can even develop a career path in areas outside of public accounting, including corporate, financial, or governmental entities through our elective course offerings.

About the MAcc Curriculum

AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business

Courses are taught in small sections, usually by full-time faculty holding doctoral degrees. Most are engaged in research in their fields and have business experience as well. Take advantage of every opportunity in this AACSB International accredited program. Plus, since most students are employed in professional or managerial positions, they bring a wealth of business experience to share. Students who wish to gain experience in the field of accounting are encouraged to participate in internships.  Opportunities are available throughout the New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania tri-state area.


A MAcc Program That Fits Your Life.

We know you have commitments. That’s why the Rider MAcc program offers evening classes (Monday through Thursday) with some online course offerings. Further, all basic requirement courses are offered during fall, spring, and summer semesters. While most students pursue their MAcc on a part-time basis, the course schedule allows you to permit you to pursue the MAcc on a full-time basis (four courses or 12 credits).
