Your Non-Accounting Background is an Asset
Within the NC State MAC Program, there’s no single path to success. While many MAC students majored in accounting as undergrads, others bring different areas of expertise, from engineering to communications — and that diversity makes your MAC experience stronger. What unites our students is a shared commitment to excellence and a desire to gain the skills needed to thrive in today’s complex business environment.
Surprisingly around half of our students don’t come from an accounting background. We’re seeing many individuals embrace accounting as a profession because it offers a broad range of career paths and great job security.
