In partnership with program sponsor EY, the program host a series of workshops and events throughout the spring providing students access to mentorship opportunities and industry professionals. MAC Mentorship sessions have included:

  • Speed Networking
  • Inclusion in Business

MAC Mentees will learn about MAC 777, a guided undergraduate research course, which is specifically designed and open to students that are in the MAC Mentorship Program. The fall course is taught by program director and MAC professor Tamara Barringer. MAC 777 helps students use the skills they built in MAC Mentorship while working in teams and coached by professionals from EY on a capstone case competition.

The MAC Mentorship Program aims to foster an inclusive and supportive learning experience. Students from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to join. Underrepresented students include those who identify as African American/ Black, Hispanic/Latino(a), and/or Native American/Alaskan Native. First-generation college students and those who have experienced socioeconomic hardship are also strongly encouraged to apply.

The Accounting Mentorship Program

The Accounting Mentorship Program, or AMP, is a remarkable opportunity for rising second- and third-year students from any non-UNC undergraduate institution to receive 1:1 personal mentorship that provides insights into the accounting profession, and preparation for a successful career in business. Delivered by Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG) accountants and the UNC Master of Accounting team, the AMP experience aims to build industry knowledge while helping mentees develop personal and professional skills that will prepare them for graduate school, and the business world. As part of AMP mentees:

  • Develop important professional relationships with DHG associates, the UNC Master of Accounting (MAC) Program admissions team, and with fellow mentees and AMP alumni
  • Experience professional development programming centered on career exploration, building personal brand, inclusive leadership, and more
  • Have early access to recruiters from DHG, and the chance to interview for DHG’s Leadership Conference, which could lead to a paid internship opportunity

At the close of the AMP, mentees also will receive a professional development stipend established to support with professional development, academic, or graduate school prep related needs. Additionally, AMP mentees interested in the UNC MAC Program receive added support throughout the application process including an application fee waiver and priority fellowship consideration!

We’ll be hosting an AMP information session/Q&A on April 29, 2021 from 12:30 p.m.-1 p.m. via Zoom. Hear more about the program while connecting with members of the UNC MAC and DHG teams, and learning insights about the AMP experience from former mentees.
