History and Network

MAC history

We first began offering the Master of Accounting Program in 1985. It began as an Accounting concentration within the undergraduate business degree and grew from there.

Why should this matter to you? For many reasons, but let’s just focus on three.

The business world has evolved. So have we.

Having delivered our program for over three decades, we have been able to change, retool, adapt and evolve the program as the worlds of business and accounting evolved. With world-class faculty, a dedicated staff, powerful recruiting engine and up-to-date curriculum, we offer significant value to our students.

Our reputation precedes you.

Our program — and our graduates — are known for excellence within the business world. Employers believe in our process, value our program, and recruit our students. As a result, 98% of our students receive offers of employment within three months of graduation.

Our alumni network is very strong.

At this point, more than thirty years’ worth of UNC Kenan-Flagler MAC graduates fill the ranks of all Big 4 accounting firms, middle-market firms, numerous corporations, public-sector entities and non-profits. Distinguished MAC alumni hold positions of influence across the country and around the world. They serve as recruiters, mid-level managers, and senior executives. As such, they become invaluable connections for our graduates.
