The MS in Accounting/MBA Experience
Your corporate residency at D'Amore-McKim will boost your confidence and build your network through an intense work experience that's unique to our program. If you're a Full-Time MBA or Full-Time MS in Finance/MBA student, you'll work full time at a leading firm or startup in your field and earn a salary. If you are a MS in Accounting/MBA student, you'll work full-time at a Big Four or other top accounting firm, gaining paid professional experience and making valuable industry connections.
In your residency, you'll have significant responsibilities from the moment you walk through the door and spend months immersed in the company, solving problems and building relationships with senior leadership. And you may find yourself with a job offer from your host company after your residency.
You simply won't find another MBA internship with this kind of impact. You'll make meaningful contributions to your host firm and be able to see your classroom learnings make a difference in real time. And you'll graduate the program with a powerful industry network already in place.
Your advisor will help you find the residency opportunity aligned with your goals.
Three residency durations offered:
- 3 months—Accelerate your degree if you're experienced in your field and aren't changing careers. Only duration for MS in Accounting/MBA
- 6 months—Get the full residency experience and forge deep connections in your chosen field.
- 12 months—Complete long-term initiatives with your host firm or complete two six-month residencies at different firms will build the unique skill set and network you need to advance your career.
The Corporate Residency Experience
“I don't think I would have received this job offer without my corporate residency experience. My residency provided me with the foundation and connections that I needed to be qualified for this new position. Without my MBA education, I wouldn't be able to perform at the level needed for this role.”MALOU DE KERGENT, MBA'22
“The residency has made all the difference in the world for a career-changer like me. The company I work for, Wellington Management, is awesome. I'm working in investment compliance, monitoring accounts to ensure they meet both internal client standards and the standards established by the SEC and foreign governments. Working at Wellington has opened my eyes to the entire finance ecosystem and how the elements interact.”ROSS WHELTON, MS in Finance/MBA'22
“I have felt the effects of how the corporate residency put me a step ahead of others. In addition to the terminology and methodology that I was learning, the residency gave me an inside look into how the work was set up and organized. Through shadowing and aiding the associates, I felt more aware of my responsibilities going into my current position.”YURSA SYED, MS in Accounting/MBA'20

“When I only have one, then I'm short handed. When I have two, then I get my job done”
“Students from the Northeastern MSA/MBA program do so well because liberal arts is part of their education. It's all about thinking, communicating, and problem-solving..When you combine the technical and soft skills, it results in a really good auditor.”
“We need the right people, so that's where we turn to our Northeastern residents…They're involved in all phases and they get the complete experience of seeing a project through from start to finish.”
“The residency provides us a source of talent to hire, and it gives both the MBA student and the hiring manager the ability to get familiar with each other first to see if the relationship will be a good long-term fit. There's simply less risk for hiring a resident that we already know. This workforce development model has been a big success for my company.”

“When I did my residency in finance, I was surprised by how much I liked the field…As a result of that experience, I have accepted a full-time job in finance.” says Leah Riley, MBA'20
“I chose this program for two main reasons—the corporate residency and the university's excellent veterans' services. When I began as an undergraduate, I struggled to adjust to civilian life. The strong veteran community was, more than anything else, what got me through.” says John McGuinness, MBA‘21
“I would highly recommend D'Amore-McKim. The program's connections to some of the biggest accounting firms in the world and the paid corporate residency make it worth it in itself, but the hands-on experience coupled with the classroom knowledge make this program an even bigger no-brainer for anyone interested in accounting.”
Undergraduate Degree: Journalism
“The accounting corporate residency enabled me to build the self-confidence necessary to excel at work and also gave me the opportunity to develop strong relationships within the company that will help me begin my full-time career on the right foot,” says Victoria Sponsel, MS in Accounting/MBA'18
