Rice University Master of Accounting Program and Scholarships

The Rice MAcc is different from most other graduate accounting programs.

·                 The program offers excellent employment opportunities for graduates:
o   We expect a near 100% placement rate at graduation. Most graduates will enter public accounting, though there will also be opportunities in consulting, investment banking, and business financial analysis.
o   The “Big 4” public accounting firms consistently rank highly in Fortune magazine's “100 Best Companies to Work For” and Business Week's "Best Places to Launch a Career" surveys.
·                 Beyond an introductory financial accounting course, the Rice MAcc has only two accounting undergraduate prerequisite classes, both of which can be taken in a concentrated, summer pre-term format just before matriculation.
·                 The program is open to all non-accounting undergraduate majors.
o   Students majoring in such diverse majors as Economics, History, Psychology, Sociology, Music, Violin Performance, Civil Engineering, Mathematics, Sport Management, English, Religion, and Mathematical Economic Analysis are expected to be part of our first matriculating class.

Click here to request more information about Green Corps

Green Corps is looking for college graduates who are ready to take on the biggest environmental challenges of our day.

In Green Corps’ yearlong paid program, you’ll get intensive training in the skills you need to make a difference in the world. You’ll get hands-on experience fighting to solve urgent environmental problems — climate change, deforestation, water pollution, factory farming and many others — with groups like Sierra Club and Food & Water Watch. And when you graduate from Green Corps, we’ll help you find a career with one of the nation’s leading environmental and social change groups.
