Business Students in Class

Master of Accounting

The LCU School of Business offers a fast-track program for business students to receive their Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and Master of Accounting in just five years, saving students both time and money. The Master of Accounting program can also be completed as a stand-alone program for those wishing to complete a graduate degree in accounting.

The Master of Accounting (MAcc) program* is a 30-hour graduate program that will prepare students for their callings in the field of accounting and to successfully complete the Uniform CPA Exam, fully prepared for lives of Christian service and leadership.


What Students Are Saying:

“My goal is not to be a business person who just so happens to be a Christian, but a Christian who just so happens to be in business. I want to be able to incorporate a passion for Christ into my love for business.”
     – Allison Scott, Junior soccer athlete

“There’s a noticeable difference between Lubbock Christian University and other universities. It has become clear to me that other universities may have offered what I wanted, but didn’t offer what I needed.”
    – Jeremy Nuttall, Senior transfer student
