What stood out to you about the M.S. in Accounting Program at UVA?

I liked that the program helps students prepare for the working world rather than focusing solely on passing the CPA exam. I also liked how UVA's courses focused on leadership, decision making, and project management, skills that can be leveraged upon graduation. In addition, I wanted a program that had a hands-on career services center to help navigate the job market as well as an extensive alumni network.

What are you looking forward to the most in the program?

I'm really looking forward to meeting all new people from different universities!

Name three places on your bucket list to travel to.
