"With the MACCY program providing a bridge to 150 credits and helping in preparation for the CPA exam, I became a licensed CPA a year after graduation. The CPA license brought me opportunities for advancement and obtaining it early allowed me to focus on work instead of review courses as responsibilities increased. I am thankful to be a part of the Rutgers Business School community and for the impact it has made on my career."

"I am truly thankful for the education I received through the Rutgers Business School Master of Accountancy in Financial Accounting Program. The team experience within the program was an invaluable tool that readied me for the work environment. The smaller classroom size enabled the professors to be available for advice and guidance. In addition, the opportunities to network and utilize the Career Services Center was beneficial to my job search and future endeavors."
