Master of Arts in Accounting

Admissions

ONLINE, IN-PERSON OR BOTH
Customized "Live Class" Course Delivery

The Wingate MAC Program is customized based on student preference with course delivery options including live-online, in-person and/or a combination of both.

Most MAC classes “originate” from the Wingate Ballantyne Campus starting at 6 p.m. on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night. Each MAC class meets once per week during the Fall, Spring, and  Summer semesters.  Classes are taught “live” by the instructor from the classroom with students present while being simultaneously broadcast live via Zoom/Canvas to students who are not physically present in the classroom. 

Students may move in and out of the different delivery modes from class meeting to class meeting as best fits their needs.  For example, a student may take part in a Wednesday night class in-person one night, and then take part in the same class the following Wednesday night  online.  Students do not have to choose a particular delivery mode in advance and may customize their MAC experience based on the delivery mode that best suits them from day to day.

The choice of live-online and/or in-person delivery provides maximum flexibility and convenience for students.  Whether live-online or in-person, the Wingate MAC program is up close and personal with typical class sizes of 15-20 students where you will develop a professional network with fellow students and faculty with relationships for life.

Please note, when Wingate University operates under normal conditions, F1 visa international students are required to follow the in-person class requirements to maintain their student visa status. Please email international@wingate.edu for further information.

Attending the MAC Program at Wingate University is one of the best things I've done for my career and for myself. I grew so much as a person and developed the skills that employers are looking for.  Because the class sizes are small, I developed great relationships with my professors, which accelerated my growth and my knowledge as a professional.  The fact that I was able to develop these close professional relationships with my professors made my MAC program experience even more amazing. I will always be grateful for all the support and mentorship that my professors gave me.  And on top of everything else, one of the things I liked most about the MAC program was the fact that it was very affordable.  I am eternally grateful for all the things Wingate University has helped me achieve.Estefania Risso Osorio, CohnRenzick, LLP
