The MAcc program made a huge difference in my life and career. Professionally, starting as an accounting clerk back in 2000, I was able to acquire real life knowledge needed to succeed in the accounting profession, successfully pass the CPA exams and become employed by one of the Big 4 accounting firms.
Personally, the program provided a well-rounded education about how business and personal finance work in this country. The department provided accessibility to and strong support by professors and instructors.
I will always be grateful to several of my UNR teachers that encouraged me and served as great examples where I want to be. I worked for Deloitte & Touche for 2.5 years in their audit department and left to join Crandall Chartered to work in the taxation field. In February of 2012 I started my own accounting practice in Incline Village, NV.
The University is a great place to be. I consider myself very lucky to be a UNR graduate.
