"The School of Business and Economics has impacted me in such an awesome way. Originally, I didn't know if I would excel in my fields of accounting and MIS, but with encouragement, wisdom, and leadership from my professors. I have since been able to obtain an internship at Ernst and Young. SBE have me the opportunity by funding a trip to the National Association of Black Accountants, which enabled me to engage with other future accounting professionals and top accounting companies.
