"The flexibility SNHU provides, and the reasonable cost, has helped me take another step closer to realizing my ultimate goal."
Taxes have always been an interest of mine and working in personal finance for almost a decade made it an integral part of my job. The CPA designation was always a consideration in the back of my mind, but my wife, also a CPA, helped push me into action. At first, I tried the traditional MBA route, but it didn’t fit with my lifestyle. Having to attend class in person twice a week for three hours at night after working a full day proved too difficult.
I found Southern New Hampshire University's online MS is Accounting/Taxation program and haven’t looked back. Currently, I own and operate my own tax practice and plan on sitting for the CPA exam in the fall. Opening my own practice has pushed back graduating with my master's in accounting, but I anticipate finishing that by early 2015. Best of all, I still have the time to spend with my wife and twenty-month old son.
