The Robert Beyer Center for Managerial Accounting and Control is affiliated with the Accounting and Information Systems department of the Wisconsin School of Business. The Beyer Center provides nationally recognized leadership in managerial accounting and control through education, research and public service.

The Beyer professorships are the result of a major grant by Robert and Monica Beyer. In addition to the sponsorship of two professorships, the Beyer Center has held two national conferences addressing methodologies to improve the practice of managerial accounting.

Programs We Support

Integrated Master of Accountancy (IMAcc)

This program is designed for undergraduate students majoring in accounting at the Wisconsin School of Business. Integrated with the accounting curriculum, the IMAcc adds a fifth year of study, including a paid internship in the spring of the senior year. Students graduate with both a BBA degree in accounting and a Master of Accountancy.

Graduate master of Accountancy (GMAcc)

The GMAcc is generally completed in two years, with a paid internship during the summer between years one and two. This program is ideal for students with little or no accounting background, and is open to students who are not currently pursuing an undergraduate accounting degree at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
