Jess Robinson has some great advice to share - if it's not difficult it's not work, and if it's not work then you can't grow.

The MAC program welcomes Ajenae Barrier to the on-campus program!

Undergraduate school ➡️ NC State, BS in Mathematics

Hometown ➡️ Concord, NC

Work experience/future job ➡️ I recently had a summer internship with Grant Thornton as an Audit intern as well as a winter internship with RSM. I would like to have a job as an Audit Associate after I graduate the MAC program. 

Why did you choose the Jenkins MAC? ➡️ I chose NC State because I knew the accounting program here and felt that it was the best for me. With a challenging program, such as the MAC, my top priority was support and comfortability especially during a pandemic. Since I already knew how well NC State supported their students during the pandemic, I felt that it was the best place to go considering how unpredictable COVID was.

What are you looking forward to the most? ➡️ I most look forward to networking and meeting others that I will build long-lasting relationships with. I believe networking is essential, especially when entering the business world, and that you can never meet enough people. 

🐾 I am so excited to get back to NC State and can't wait to start my graduate career. GO pack! 🐾

Welcome Payton Coats to the MAC on-campus program! 🎉

Undergraduate school ➡️ Meredith College

Hometown ➡️ Raleigh, NC

Job after graduation ➡️ I was offered a full-time position with Williams Overman Pierce after completing my internship this summer. I will be joining their team in Raleigh beginning in August of next year as a tax associate. 

Why did you choose the Jenkins MAC? ➡️ I chose NC State’s MAC Program really because of the reputation the program holds. From the professors to the pass rate on the CPA exam, NC State stood out to me on several levels compared to other universities. 

What are you looking forward to most? ➡️ I am looking forward to the new people I will meet while in the program. Spending four years at Meredith allowed me to become very comfortable with my peers, so coming to NC State excites me. I will be stepping out of my comfort zone meeting, and working with new people, but I know it will be fun! 

So glad to have you with us Payton! We think you are going to love being part of the pack! 🐾 🐺 🐾

It is now the third day of the fall semester and our students are off to a great start. For the next few days we will be introducing you to some of our new online and on-campus students! They are joining us this year from all over the country, straight out of undergrad and with several years of work experience!  We are so glad they are here.

First up - Welcome Andre Little to the MAC online program.

Undergraduate School ➡️ NC State - B.S. Business Administration and Management - Finance, Accounting Minor

Hometown ➡️ Durham/Chapel Hill

Current job ➡️ I am currently working in the state/local tax field as an Audit Manager at the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Why did you choose the Jenkins MAC? ➡️ I had such positive experiences as an NC State undergraduate. It continued when I enrolled in the Tax, Analytics and Technology certificate program and became a NC State Jenkins MBA candidate. The NC State Jenkins Master of Accounting program was the only choice!

What are you looking forward to most while in the program?
➡️ Though I have several years of state/local tax experience, I am looking forward to broadening my knowledge base in other areas of Accounting (federal taxation, audit, IT, etc...). Also looking forward to connecting with others in the program, which is already happening! 

🐾 I wouldn't be where I am today without the love and support of my wife Susan, 3 year old daughter Samantha, and pup Sophie! 🐾
