Student Success Profile

"The reason I chose Accounting as my major was because there is a wide variety of jobs that I could do when I graduate college. It was also one of the most desirable degrees worldwide and almost guaranteeing you will find a job upon graduation. Accounting has changed from just sitting behind a desk 40 hours a week to going out in the public to conduct audits or examine fraud cases and that’s why I chose Accounting as my major."
