Transitioning from the SEC to the ACC

In part one of our series we shared the stories of three current M.S. in Accounting (MSA) students who moved here from another country. In part two, we’ll learn about a few more students who made their transition to UVA from universities with 28,000+ students. As stated previously, over 40 undergraduate institutions are represented in this year’s class. Our hope is that you can connect with some of these students and use their experiences to help you in making your decision!

While looking through syllabi the first day of class, I noticed the emphasis placed on class participation, group work, and learning the implications of accounting standards.
