  • Traditional fifth year program: Begin your studies in September and complete them in May
OR
  • Summer / Fall: Begin your studies in May and complete them in December
OR
  • Spring / Summer: Begin your studies in January and complete them in August
OR
  • Summer / Summer: Begin your studies in May of the first year, work in the firm for the fall and spring, and complete your studies from May to August of the second year.

Many students begin the Bryant MPAc immediately upon graduation from their undergraduate program. Some who have accepted a position choose the Summer/Fall program. This format allows students to be "150 compliant" by late December and begin their position in January.

All MPAc courses are delivered simultaneously in the classroom and via distance spanning technology. You have the opportunity to log into a “virtual classroom” via any high-speed internet connection and you will participate with the professor and your classmates, in real time with complete audio and video access. In addition, each class session is recorded so if you would like to go back and review the class later, you can, provided you attended the class when it was originally held.
