MS Accounting - Forensic Accounting, Class of 2016

"The program cost is very reasonable for a quality education, and the pace of the program is manageable for a working mother."

As a mother, student and sole supporter of my home, time management and finances can be an obstacle in reaching my goals. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in 2000, and decided to go back to school in 2011 to work toward my master's degree. I applied to Northeastern University, in Boston, and completed two years of the five-year master's program, when I purchased my first home in 2012. The added costs of a mortgage and maintaining a home, childcare, as well as, the high cost at Northeastern were a lot to maintain. Shortly after moving into my home, I kept seeing ads for SNHU, so I called and spoke with an admissions advisor, and within a few weeks, I had transferred out of my former university and into SNHU. I am extremely happy with my decision to transfer into the M.S. in Forensic Accounting program at SNHU; the program cost is very reasonable for a quality education, and the pace of the program is manageable for a working mother. The professors are very hands on, supportive and responsive to any questions and/or concerns, which is very important in an online environment/program. I am currently finishing up my 5th course in my program at SNHU, and the 6th course will begin in one week. My goal is within reach thanks to SNHU. I expect to earn my master's degree by 2016.
