North Carolina Central University Partners With Wake Technical Community College for Accounting

The business school at historically Black North Carolina Central University in Durham was entered into an agreement with Wake Technical Community College. Under the agreement, students who earn an associate degree in accounting and finance at Wake Tech may now transfer those credits to NCCU and complete a bachelor’s degree in accounting in two years. Students who complete the associate degree program at Wake Tech will have more than 50 transferable hours when entering the NCCU School of Business accounting program.

Wake Technical Community College in Raleigh, North Carolina, enrolls nearly 22,000 students, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 21 percent of the student body.

“This partnership demonstrates our strong commitment to providing a seamless pathway to a four-year degree for students interested in an accounting career,” said Raghavan Iyengar, Ph.D., chair of the Accounting Program in the NCCU School of Business. “We have a great relationship with Wake Tech and its accounting program, and feel privileged to be able to extend collegiate accounting instruction to students interested in continuing their education at NCCU.”

“This partnership between our campuses will ensure students are able to receive the best of two institutions dedicated to their scholastic and career-development needs,” added Anthony Nelson, dean of the NCCU School of Business. “We look forward to more opportunities to create enrollment pipelines of this kind that allow students to more easily obtain a four-year degree.”
