A One-Year Graduate Accounting Program
for Non-Accounting Majors
The Master of Accounting Program at UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School is designed for people with little to no previous accounting education.
Applicants may not have more than 12.0 credits of accounting to enter the program. This requirement is a reflection of the way the curriculum is structured. You will find that different programs across the U.S. are structured in various ways.
Generally speaking, any course with Accounting, Tax, Audit, or Financial Reporting in the title will count toward this limit.
