Lifelong Learning

Professional development, industry knowledge and meaningful connection for MAC alumni, partners and friends.

Connect and Grow

Offered through a collaboration with NC State Executive Education, Lifelong Learning brings together accounting professionals with shared experiences and a Wolfpack connection to help you develop, adapt and lead in your career.

  • Tap into knowledge, research and expertise to help you stay on the leading edge of emerging trends in accounting and business.
  • Access professional development, including CPE, to strengthen your skills and support meaningful career growth.
  • Reconnect and create meaningful new relationships with fellow MAC alumni, respected faculty and a network of diverse, skilled accounting professionals.

Great session and kick off to the program! The topic was interesting, something we wouldn’t normally hear about in CPE.
