For the first term of autumn, I currently have two required classes and two electives in the MAcc program. Little did I know how many cases I have to deal with every week when selecting my electives for this term. However, I'm very happy I chose these classes and want to give you a brief overview of what are entailed in them.
After finishing my undergraduate studies, I was very excited to see how drastically my life would change going through the Specialized Master in Finance program (SMF). Today, I can confidently tell you this: there's not a day goes by where you don't have something to work on.
I wanted to zoom in on one of my previous blog posts, More than an HR Degree, where I discussed the variety of elective opportunities through the MHRM program. For the fall semester, I am enrolled in a three-credit elective "The Business of College Sports". As we all know athletics is huge at Ohio State and we are lucky enough to have the course taught by non other than the athletic director of Ohio State, Gene Smith, and his wife Shelia Smith.
My name is Mike Powers and I'm a graduate assistant for the MAcc program here at Ohio State University. I come from a small Division III school in Illinois, Augustana College, where I double-majored in accounting and business management and was captain of the varsity baseball team. Safe to say, it has been a culture shock to leave my 2,500-student undergraduate institution to attend a university with upwards of 66,000 in enrollment. In one word, everything here is just bigger.
