The application process is over, and now, you’re wondering if Fisher College of Business is the right choice for you for a MAcc program. I interviewed a fellow co-worker and MAcc classmate Jiajun (Jasmine) Wei to gain valuable insights into her background and why she decided to come to Fisher.
- Where are you from?
- I originally came from Harbin, China.
- Where did you earn your undergraduate degree?
- Augustana College, Illinois. It’s a small liberal arts college located in Rock Island, Illinois.
- What attracted you to Ohio State and the Fisher College of Business?
- Well, the MAcc program at Fisher College of Business has a great reputation and an outstanding academic ranking. The curriculum is designed with 75+% electives which allow the students to customize the class schedule and explore the areas that interest them the most. Unlike some other programs, the MAcc program does not ask students to declare the specific focus at the beginning of the year. Therefore, the students have a lot of time to try different classes and find out what they are actually interested in. In addition, since OSU is such a big university, there are a lot of resources on campus to help students succeed. For example, the Office of Career Management has a dedicated career counselor for MAcc students.
- What’s your favorite class in the MAcc program?
- I actually have two favorite classes. One of them is a core class that’s about managerial accounting and taught by Professor Arya. He is very knowledgeable and I feel like he is not only teaching the material, but also teaching us a way of thinking. His class is very interactive.
- Another class that I like a lot is the Fraud and Asset Misappropriation class taught by Douglas Huffner. He is also working in the Risk Management Department. His class well prepares students to face potentially controversial situations in the workforce. The discussions are very meaningful and insightful.
- What’s your favorite place to be on campus?
- Any recommendation for future students?
- Everyone, including your classmates, is a resource for you.
- Make sure to utilize all the resources.
- Make connections with recruiters and professors.
I would like to thank Jasmine (pictured below) for volunteering her time to be interviewed. It’s been a great year to meet new people and gain friendships through class. I can ensure all future students that the decision to join the MAcc program at Fisher is a great one!
