“Over twenty years ago I asked myself this question as I entered college. Today I can look back on my decision to study Accounting as one of the better decisions I have made. The study of Accounting and preparation for the CPA examination taught me basic disciplines early on such as: attention to detail; intense preparation for a goal; the related importance of having a plan for success; and, self-responsibility for the achievement of a goal.
My undergraduate study of Accounting also opened the door to a number of long-term career opportunities and business relationships. I have used these basic building blocks, along with my natural curiosity about the world, to steadily advance my career. Every day I apply the basic skills and disciplines which the study of Accounting distilled in me early on.”
