Meet Some of Our Students

“The accounting internship 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 Sponsel.

“The whole experience is very rewarding and the program has a great track record of setting its graduates up for success,” says Hammerly. “You can’t beat the industry connections and the internship placement process!”

“The way the MSA/MBA program is structured allows someone without any accounting experience to gain the skills needed to launch a career in professional accounting,” says Sundquist. “However, it goes beyond that and combines it with additional business courses to ensure each student gets a well-rounded education.”
