Students completing our Master of Accountancy Program will meet the requirement to sit for the CPA exam in Missouri. While most students complete both their undergraduate and graduate accounting programs at Truman, you may also enter the undergraduate program as a transfer student or enter the graduate program after receiving an undergraduate degree at Truman or another university.

A high percentage of graduates of Truman’s accountancy program consistently pass all parts of the CPA exam on the first attempt.

Specific course information and requirements can be found in the University Catalog.

As a student, I was able to shadow Ernst & Young staff for a couple of days long before I thought about interning with them. I also had the opportunity to lead Beta Alpha Psi’s Best Practices team into a Regional Competition where we presented on a student-run tax program called VITA, and I attended the Beta Gamma Sigma conference in Indianapolis where I got to meet members from all over the States and the world. There were some great speakers and activities to meet future accountants and business leaders.
