Career Services

Put your new skills and knowledge to work.

For most people, returning to graduate school is an investment in one’s career, with a common question: “Will this pay off?” For our students, the answer is nearly always the same: “Yes, it will.” Earning a MAC degree in the online format of the UNC Master of Accounting Program pays a remarkable ROI, whether you are looking to:

Start your career. All of the Big 4 and mid-market accounting firms as well as numerous major corporations — including ExxonMobil, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America, among others — recruit students from our online format. You’ll participate alongside your on-campus peers in our powerful recruiting process, which puts 98% of our job-seeking students to work within three months of graduation.

Advance your career. Leadership training, career-management workshops, and customized 1:1 career coaching are offered to online-format students who are looking to build careers they’ve already started, whether they are early in their career, heading toward senior roles, or looking for unique opportunities. On top of the new accounting skills and knowledge you’ll gain, these items provide unique opportunities for professional growth.

Switch careers. If you already have some professional experience, you have choices. Leverage our recruiting engine and interview for progressive entry-level positions with accounting firms and other companies looking to hire our students. Or, get advice from our experts on how to combine your previous experience with your new accounting skills to forge a new path for your career.
