Our competitive Master of Accounting program helps the best and brightest become leaders in the accounting industry.
Your Future Starts Here
The accounting profession offers unlimited growth potential across business, and NC State’s unique industry-focused curriculum prepares you to take advantage of every opportunity. Our combination of rigorous academics and high-impact experiential learning deepens your knowledge of accounting and also gives you opportunities to put your newfound knowledge to work.
You are more than numbers on a screen. In addition to having strong academic records and GMAT test scores, successful applicants to our program demonstrate leadership and engagement in their school or community.
While many MAC students majored in accounting as undergrads, we welcome applicants from any academic background — and that diversity makes your MAC experience stronger.
