"The master’s in accounting program at Southern New Hampshire University provided with me with all the tools to sit for the CPA exam."
The current state of the accounting profession is constantly evolving. The Crash of 1929 enacted the Securities Act of 1933 and 1934. The string of scandals in the early 21st century drove the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The upward trend of accounting opportunities makes a career in the accounting profession a smart choice. After several long discussions with my sister Beth, a smart and exceptionally successful person, she made it clear that going back to school for a master’s in accounting would undoubtedly help open doors and advancement opportunities in the accounting world.
After taking on two classes a semester and working full-time, I accomplished my goal. I am hearing impaired, which has always made classroom settings difficult; however, the online program allowed me to read and understand all the material the professors presented. Also, having no background or undergraduate knowledge in accounting, the master’s in accounting program at Southern New Hampshire University provided with me with all the tools to sit for the CPA exam. I’m excited to take on the next goal!
