Selection Criteria

The ideal candidate.

Recruiters tell us that the type of students they hire for – or promote within – their firms, companies, and organizations must possess more than the ability to crunch numbers. They need to be savvy communicators, natural problem solvers, and strong leaders.

UNC Accounting -- Admissions Selection Criteria

Therefore, as one of the nation’s top graduate accounting programs, we seek highly motivated candidates who possess the following skills:

  • Strong critical and analytical thinking aptitude
  • The ability to achieve sustained high performance
  • Extraordinary communication and interpersonal skills
  • Leadership and organizational abilities
  • Depth of character: integrity, teamwork, community, and a passion for learning

It is important to note that we accept students from all educational backgrounds — from business, finance, and accounting, to English, chemistry, and law — and from all professions. This diversity creates a rich student experience and one that we take great pride in. To this end, we do not require any specific work experience or coursework.
