How has the Kelley School Graduate Accounting Programs experience enhanced your current career and future career goals?
My experience in the Kelley Graduate Accounting Program has been exceptional. It has exposed me to both professional and personal opportunities that I would not have had otherwise, and it has led to business opportunities and relationships. Kelley has an amazing reputation in the community and across the country that has allowed me to start conversations and build on my professional network.
What has been your favorite part of the program thus far?
My favorite part of the program has been the amazing opportunity to network and develop relationships with the students and faculty/staff. I’ve enjoyed building those relationships and learning more about different cultures and each individual’s story on how they got to where they are today! The diversity of the students is incredible.
What has been your favorite class and why?
It’s hard to pick out a favorite class because, for me, each class experience was unique and shaped by the professor. The professors in the Graduate Accounting Programs are all, truly, professionals and experienced at what they do. Their passion for teaching and ensuring student’s success is apparent and the reason the program graduates successful students.
What is your advice to current Kelley students?
My advice to current Kelley students is to get involved. Like with anything else, you get out what you put in. The Kelley School of Business, and in particular the Graduate Accounting Programs, offers students many opportunities to be involved in the community, meet industry leaders, and build relationships with faculty and staff. This is instrumental in a student’s success and overall educational experience. Take advantage of the opportunities and make the time….You won’t regret it!
What is your Kelley moment?
My Kelley moment is more than just a moment but the entire journey of being a part of the Kelley family. From the moment I inquired about the Graduate Accounting Programs to now being less than a month away from graduation, the Kelley School of Business has been one of my top life experiences. It took a significant amount of commitment and many sacrifices, but it is a decision I can’t be more thankful for. The Graduate Accounting Programs are top notch, and I’m so very grateful and proud to have been a part of this program.
