Advance your career whether you’re active duty or transitioning from service. The NC State Jenkins MAC offers on-campus and and online options, so you’ll find the perfect fit for your needs.

From Military to MAC

The Jenkins MAC is a one-year curriculum designed to provide students with a broad understanding of accounting and business practices, as well as a rigorous technical accounting education.

You can pursue your MAC from anywhere in the world, on your own time, with our online program. This program is also ideal for military spouses looking to enter into a profession that is growing faster than the national average.

Accounting is all about the numbers, so here’s one for you: 6,421. It’s the number of miles between NC State and Baghdad, Iraq, where U.S. Army Major Gene Pursifull is stationed. Here’s how he’s working towards his online Master’s of Accounting degree from overseas.

Most military students are eligible for excellent government assistance through the Military Assistance Tuition Program. The NC State Veterans’ Education Office also supports student veterans and veterans’ dependents in applying for and managing their VA Education Benefits/GI Bill.

In addition, if you haven’t already done so, we recommend familiarizing yourself with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Education & Training information. This site guides you through the process of selecting and enrolling in a program, including requesting your Certificate of Eligibility.

Military candidates can receive additional benefits:

  • Application fees are waived for all US military members.
  • Military service is a consideration for our GMAT waiver. Candidates must complete the GMAT application waiver form.
  • NC State participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
  • Scholarships available
