It appears that he will be CPA eligible without the master's degree, upon closer inspection. Which further inclines me to vote nay on the MACC idea.

Probably true. The only thing would be that if the year vs year and a half starts in the spring it may be beneficial to get the MAcc simply because otherwise there is lost time in there. At this point we're splitting hairs though.
