“The most common pathway for finance and accounting students is to go into banking or public accounting. That wasn’t for me. I love fashion. I always knew I wanted to be in the industry, but I needed specialized knowledge and a skill set. In my job, I get to mix what I know in accounting with what I’ve learned about fashion. The business of fashion program gave me the leverage I needed to break into the industry of my dreams and secure my dream job.”
