Hello! Throughout my year here in the MAcc program, I will be writing blogs about my experience so I thought I would take the time in the first one to introduce myself. My name is Julie Peterson and I am a Student Ambassador for the MAcc program here at the Fisher College of Business. I am from New Jersey but did my undergrad at North Carolina State University graduating with a B.S. in Accounting. A few weeks ago I made the move to Columbus and couldn’t be more excited!
This past spring I had the opportunity to intern with PwC in their tax department in Raleigh North Carolina and am excited to say I will be starting with them full time in New York City in 2019!
Here are some of the things I am most excited for this year:
- The classes. The MAcc program here has a great curriculum that allows you to choose your own path. Our schedules are highly elective based in both accounting and non-accounting areas so you get to choose what interests you most!
- The City. I have never been to Columbus before a few weeks ago so I wasn’t sure what to expect from Ohio, but it has definitely exceeded my expectations. It is such a vibrant city with so much to do so stay tuned for future blog posts about my favorite places in Columbus.
- The Sports. Last but certainly not least I am excited for all The Ohio State University sports. In my undergrad, I rarely missed a football or basketball game so I can’t wait for my first game in The Shoe!
