    Lots of schools have this. Some start the masters program in the 4th year of undergrad, so at the end of the 5th year you also have a masters. Others go onto other grad schools. I met a guy who told me that he had fulfilled the class requirements, but he needed those filler credits to sit for the cpa exam. Rather than just taking those at his undergrad school he opted to go to law school and after a year he will begin to sit for the cpa exam. Talk about pressure! One school I know encourages you to try to take the 5 years in 4, but that requires a crazy amount of credits ea. semester. I cannot see this as a real option.

    You can get a BBA degree and then apply right away for the Master of Accounting, usually a 1 year program. You will need to take the GMAT and go through the application process. However, unlike the MBA, you don't need a few years of work experiences to apply for the MAcc. You should be aware that the top MAcc programs are very competitive.
