The Curriculum

Successful business leaders agree: Accounting is the language of business. And that’s just what the curriculum of the UNC Kenan-Flagler MAC Program delivers – fluency with the principles and practice of accounting, and the insight to apply this knowledge with impact. We’re building tomorrow’s leaders in the accounting profession, those poised to make a difference in the business world. 


We make things interesting.

Accounting is important; successful businesses rely on the accurate financial data and insightful analysis that accountants deliver. It’s also way more interesting than you think. Our curriculum will give you a unique perspective on business operations: you’ll watch the numbers, follow the money, and learn how things really work. 

>> A few highlights of our accounting curriculum

Comprehensive coursework.

You'll go from start to finish in as little as one year, but you’ll also go deep. Our curriculum prepares students for leadership positions in both public accounting firms and on corporate finance teams, for success on the CPA exam, and for the ever-changing structure and environment of the business world: technical proficiency in all core areas of accounting, a facility for decision making, and an appreciation for self-discipline and high ethical standards.

>> Read (and watch!) synopses of required and elective courses

Orchestrated and organized.

You’ll take three types of courses in the MAC Program: Core Courses, courses specific to a Concentration (should you choose to pursue one), and Electives. You’ll also participate in two immersions: a Recruiting and Leadership immersion, where you’ll meet key employers looking to hire future graduates, and an Interview immersion, where you’ll interview for jobs at those same companies.

Opportunities for global learning.

If you are interested in learning about cultures from around the world and impact of business/financial on those cultures, our Global Immersions may be right for you. Students in the online format can join their MBA counterparts on educational expeditions to key financial centers around the globe and here at home in the U.S.
