MS Accounting, Class of 2015

"SNHU turned out to be a perfect match for me, and is allowing me to pursue my master's in accounting and work fulltime."

After traveling the world during most of my 20s to places such as Australia, Thailand, South Korea and Malaysia, I returned to the United States during a period of economic downturn with no job, and no clue. I had to ask myself the question, "What do I want to do with my life?"

I was working an hourly job with no room for advancement, and was significantly behind my friends who had been working since they received their undergraduate degrees. I wanted to be successful monetarily, but I also wanted to work in a field that I find enjoyable and stable.

Although I had plenty of experience working in accounting, I had gone as far as possible without having to further my education. I began looking at programs that would allow me to pursue my dream of a better future while working full-time and juggling all the responsibilities of life. SNHU turned out to be a perfect match for me, and is allowing me to pursue my master's in accounting and work full-time. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the program thus far, and I can’t wait to finish!
