Accounting and Analytics - Study a Dynamic and Growing Field of Business
UNC’s Monfort College of Business is one of the very few that is accredited by AACSB International in both business administration and accounting—the "gold standard" for accreditation. The program is also internationally recognized for exceptional research in accounting systems.
Our students develop valuable skills in analytics, financial accounting, management accounting, auditing, tax, and accounting systems. Class sizes are small, our faculty know our students, and our program emphasizes critical, strategic and ethical thinking.
Undergraduate students can pursue a Business Administration degree in accounting, while graduate students can earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree with a concentration in Accounting Analytics.

"From my first day on campus, my experience at MCB has been more than I could have imagined. I cannot think of one teacher that doesn't have experience outside of the classroom, which is what I like most about MCB. The experiences and stories shared by professors make class more interesting and allow me to relate to what they are teaching. They tell you that they put their students first, and they have all followed through with that by going out of their way to make sure I succeed."
- Morgan Laustrup, Class of 2015
