While the on-campus format of the UNC Master of Accounting Program begins in June, we recognize that our students have unique opportunities to complete before starting the program. Examples include internships or competing in collegiate sports at your undergraduate institution.
We’ve created an option for students such as these to start the program in early August and complete their first term on an accelerated timeline. Students seeking to start the on-campus format in early August must have fulfilled their undergraduate degree requirements and have received a grade of B- or better (not pass/fail) in an Introductory Finance course from a U.S.-based, AACSB-accredited institution. (For UNC Chapel Hill undergrads, that course is BUSI 408.)
If you can meet those criteria, you’re in good shape!
Students starting in early-August may also participate in our Structured Recruiting process. You are required to attend all events, including those conducted prior to starting coursework in early August. All students starting in early-August have access to Career Services through their time in the program to complete a traditional job search.
