MS Finance - Investments & Securities, Class of 2015

"Matthew Boyd, my academic advisor, has assisted me every step of the way."

In 2007, I worked in the mortgage industry until the company I worked for closed its doors. After going through that same scenario with several companies, I decided to go back to school to complete my degree in finance. In the process of completing my degree, I discovered a passion for stock valuation, and a desire to work as a financial analyst. To become more competitive in my career search, I thought I needed a deeper understanding of finance before studying for the chartered financial analyst certification. To get that understanding, I chose Southern New Hampshire University.

The reason I chose Southern New Hampshire University was that I could start right away. I could fit my studies into my work schedule, and most importantly, I thought the curriculum would prepare me for the CFA exams, while my decision to continue my education at SNHU was due to my personal goals and aspirations. My journey while attending Southern New Hampshire University has been a team effort. Matthew Boyd, my academic advisor, has assisted me every step of the way. Matthew has not only advised me on my class schedule, he has assisted me with navigating Blackboard, ordering books and providing consistent reminders and updates. Matthew has helped to lighten my load, so that I can focus on studying. Attending Southern New Hampshire University has been a wise investment, and I look forward to my continued journey.
