A few questions regarding accounting courses & MAcc [#permalink] New post 11 Nov 2011, 07:10
Hi All,

I have a few questions regarding accounting courses and MAcc programs. Please help, thanks!

1. I recently graduated from college with a bachelor of arts degree. I would like to get a master's degree in accounting, but I really need some advice on taking accounting courses.

My situation: I took introductory financial accounting for the first time in 2008, but I withdrew from the course. Then I retook the same class at the same school (a 4-yr college) in 2009 and received a letter grade of B.

I am current taking classes at a different college, where I received transfer credit for the intro FA class I took at my alma mater. Thus, I am currently taking Managerial Accounting.

However, it has been 2.5 years since I retook the intro FA course. I honestly don't think I have a 100% understanding of the basics taught in the intro FA course, despite having retaken it once.

So, would it be a smart decision for me to retake introductory financial accounting?

Or is it possible to go onto intermediate financial accounting without a 100% understanding of the basics taught in the introductory financial accounting course?



2. Would retaking intro FA for a second time hurt my chances when applying to top-tier MAcc programs in the future?


3. Would retaking intro FA for a second time hurt my chances when applying for full time jobs at Big4 in the future?

1) Some schools probably won't even accept transfer credits unless they were taken recently at an accredited school. This depends on which MS program you end up with.

2) No

3) No
