I had the privilege of speaking with an alumna of our program who has gone on to work internationally, heading up operational risk at Man FRM, a global hedge fund investment specialist. Haliday, enjoying the best of what Europe has to offer, spoke with me after enjoying a two-week vacation and a conference in Paris, making me pretty jealous after spending the day studying CPA materials.
It’s July and if you’re an accounting major, there’s a good chance that you’re in the middle of an internship and thinking about your future plans. Between meeting everyone in your intern class, the other people in the office, and figuring out where the grocery store is, it may actually be time to start thinking about graduate school. You might think the deadlines are so far away, but the first deadline for UVA’s M.S. in Accounting program is actually right around the corner on September 15, 2016. (There are six remaining deadlines through March 15, 2017 for all those who need a little more time!)

Where did you go undergrad and what made you apply to the M.S. in Accounting (MSA) program?
