Who is Celine Chehade? Well in the easiest way of introduction, I am a current student in the Master of Accounting program here at The Ohio State University. I am originally from a place I like to refer to as “The Land” but many may better know it as Cleveland, Ohio. For the past three years, I have been working to complete my undergrad degree at OSU in Accounting and Operations Management.
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.
It is very bitter-sweet sitting here writing my last blog post. I am definitely in denial that my time here in the MAcc program is over and the real world is approaching fast. Here is a list of why the MAcc Program here at Ohio State has exceeded my expectations and been a great time:
As my time in college is coming to an end, I can only reflect on how deciding to attend The Ohio State University was the best decision that I have ever made. Ohio State offered me the perfect combination of academics, athletics, and a social atmosphere. While at Ohio State, my professors challenged me day in and day out to get outside of my comfort zone. This allowed me to become a more knowledgeable and confident individual. I am positive that I would not be headed off to work for the most valuable company in the world (Microsoft) without the skills I lear
It’s hard to believe that I’m sitting down writing my very last blog post of the year. I remember wondering in August how I could possibly have material to write about consistently throughout the year. Little did I know that the MAcc program is about way more than just completing 31 credit hours! I decided to reach out to some of my fellow classmates to learn about their favorite memories from their time in the MAcc program!
