One year. A lifetime of ROI.

In just one year, go from new student to new employee. With a challenging and powerful curriculum delivered by supportive, top-notch faculty leveraging cutting-edge technology, you’ll waste no time getting down to the business of building your career in the accounting profession.

Soon after they arrive on campus, our students begin to meet with numerous accounting firms and major corporations. Just over a year later, 98% of them are employed.

An accounting background is not required.

Designed for non-accounting majors, our on-campus format is open exclusively to students who have no more than 12 credits in accounting. Regardless of your background – be it businesseconomicsEnglishpolitical sciencemathchemistry, or any other major – our MAC program will teach you the technical skills you need and the soft skills all employers are looking for.

Enjoy beautiful Chapel Hill and its progressive surroundings.

Delivered from the University of North Carolina campus in beautiful Chapel Hill, our on-campus format gives students more than a degree; it offers a destination like no other. The character of Chapel Hill and the Carolina campus is legendary, and the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill metropolitan area is one of the most progressive and fastest-growing cities in the U.S. (The weather isn’t bad either!)

You will be recruited while you are in school.

All of the Big 4 and middle-market accounting firms, as well as numerous major corporations actively recruit – and hire — our students. Within weeks of joining the program, you’ll meet the firms; a few months later you’ll be interviewing and accepting job offers.
