If you’re looking to pursue a graduate degree in business and concentrate in accounting, what should you consider: an MBA with a concentration in accounting or a MAcc? There are a lot of Master of Accounting (“MAcc”) degrees out there and even more MBA programs. And there are differences within each type without even considering the differences between each type. Because there are differences within each type, please know that the differences I list below are generalizations for full time programs and may not always be true in every single instance.

Each contact point that you have with a school is an opportunity to stand out or be remembered. But beware – you don’t want to be remembered for the wrong reasons.
The first and most important rule is to be authentic! Whether you are writing your application essay or interviewing with a member of the admission committee, make your words represent who you are and who you want to be. Too many students make the mistake of magnifying an extraneous aspect of themselves because they are reaching for a way to show that they are different – or that they fit in. Acknowledge both your strengths and your non-talents, and use that to demonstrate your readiness for an MBA. Authenticity shows that you have a certain level of self awareness, which is an important quality for strong leadership.
