非會計本科還是可以申請的，除非學校有特殊要求，如果是商科類專業基本上還是沒有什麼限制的，比如本科是金融，商業管理等等。其他理工科專業（例如CS）要讀應該還是可以的，強調一下，具體的情況要咨詢你要申請的學校。但是一般情況下，非會計專業的朋友在碩士階段必須補本科的課程，例如INTERMEDIATE ACCOUNTING, ADVANCED ACCOUNTING, AUDIT, TAX等。意味着你的碩士可能要花比一般的人時間長一點。如果是牛人的話，也無所謂，每個學期多修一兩門就可以了。
Master of Accountancy (MACC)，是我們常申請的專業
給立志成為會計專才的學習就讀的專業。對Accounting的研究與學習則比MBA-Accounting更加專業和深入, 并且一般不會設計到管理學上的内容. MAcc的課程一般個美國認證公共會計師(CPA)有密切的聯系，MAcc的畢業或在讀學生可以直接報考CPA。所以UIUC把專業設置成為： Bachelor/Master in Accountancy
金融會計 Financial Accounting：用于企業對外公布會計數據的科學。學習的内容包括上市企業對外财政報表的準備以及分析。同時會涉及到企業财政稅務的方面，另外就是會計科學在金融上的應用；例如，基礎分析，資産負債的評估等，現金流分析等。這一類人才畢業的就業方向多數是上市企業，投資分析公司，投資銀行等。出路是比較豐富的。着一行的從業人員一般具有CFA,CPA 資格認證。
管理會計 Managerial Accounting：用于企業内部管理的輔助數據，管理會計的報告一般不會對外公布，而是為公司管理層用來作決信息使用。管理會計的學習對數學基礎的考察比較嚴格，學習的内容涉及到管理科學，管理決策的比較多。管理會計方向人才，畢業就業方向多數是大型企業的決策或會計部門，如 CFO, Treasurer。管理會計的從業人員一般具有 CMA －認證管理會計師資格。
Auditing：用于核對上次公司财政報表，或者評審清盤公司債務的應用科學。 Auditing在美國是很吃香的專業，因為上市公司每年都投入大量的資金入審計他們的過往一年的财政狀況，同時政府部門也會用到Auditing人才去監控投資公司，銀行，以及其他金融機構的風險比例. Auditing的學生必須非常的細心和認真，一般Auditing的從業人員都具有CPA認證資格。
PS:根據申請的學生案例來看，語言的要求格外的高，前一百名的學校，托福至少要九十多分比較有把握，GMAT一般在650左右或者是語言成績未達到選擇一些排名不錯但是地理位置比較偏的學校。GPA不高或有些國際貿易專業等跨專業的同學選擇學校要注意下，學校對你的專業度的要求。另外也要注意一些學校的專業不是FULL TIME ,而是夜校或兼職性質的，申請了浪費時間和精力。UIUC今年錄取的我一個學生比較特殊，學生大三完成了大四的課程，未拿到畢業證和學位證，T100,GMAT680,精心給她做了一本冊子，展示她的綜合背景和豐富的課外生活。
