One of the reasons I enjoy the MAcc program so much is because it allows me the flexibility to take elective classes that spark my professional interests. As a student who one day aspires to be the CFO of a company, I wanted to take extra HRM (human resource management) classes to understand more about organizational structure, what makes people tick, and how to be an effective leader.
MAcc Students with Andy Fastow
A few weeks ago, I kicked off my final semester of the Fisher MHRM program! In the new year I have decided to take on any practical application opportunities that come my way throughout the next 14 weeks. Which is why I would like to share a recent experience I volunteered to take part in.
Network, Network, Network...as students we hear this all the time from our bosses, our professors, and our parents. What is Networking anyways? Merriam Webster defines networking as "the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups or institutions" specifically for "the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business". Expanding on this definition, I consider networking not only for employment purposes but as a channel for learning and development. Many individuals network to establish a mentor or to expand their skill set.
