This program is only for accounting majors who have completed the Accounting Junior Core (it is ideally suited for students beginning the second year of the MAcc program but open to anyone who has completed the Junior Core).

Students are required to enroll in two 3.0-credit classes that count as elective courses for the MAcc and Bachelors degree programs:

ACC 545—International Accounting
BUSM 430—Intro to International Business

This study abroad satisfies the experience requirement for the international accounting emphasis in the MAcc and for the Global Business Certificate.

Students may not take any other courses on this program, including BYU Online courses, without approval by the program director and ISP.

The cost is higher for graduate and non-Latter-day Saint students.
