From Military to MAC
Become a leader in the field of accounting.
The skills required to be an exceptional leader in the military — problem solving, strategy, planning, teamwork — are the same skills required to be a successful professional accountant. With a Master of Accounting (MAC) degree, you can transition into the private sector or continue your career in the military.

With Accounting@UNC, our entirely online delivery format, you can earn your MAC degree from one of the nation’s top-ranked accounting programs…without relocating. The flexibility of an online education, with the strong reputation, top-notch faculty, and impressive curriculum that UNC Kenan-Flagler is known for.
No accounting experience necessary.
Whether you’re interested in our online format or our on-campus format, no prerequisite work or work experience is required — we have our own boot camp! This said, your military experience will serve you well as you’ll be entering a professional where leadership, precision, and attention to detail is not only welcomed, but required.
No fee to apply.
