One of the most exciting parts of the Master of Accounting (MAcc) program is all the elective options for the second semester. There is only one 2.5 credit hour class required as part of the general program during the semester, with the rest being up to each student's choice. In this blog post, I will walk through the elective choices I made for the first session of classes. Keep an eye out for another blog post during the second session about those classes. Tax 2
There are many opportunities to work on real-world projects with nonprofit clients in the Columbus area as an MBA student at Fisher.
Even though it feels like classes just started, second term is only weeks away, and it is already almost time to schedule for spring semester. That means I need to start thinking about which track I will be specializing in: corporate finance, investment management, risk management, or real estate. Right now, my SMF classmates seem pretty evenly divided between corporate finance and investment management, with a handful of others pursuing risk management and real estate. I personally am still torn between the corporate and investment tracks.
I've said this previously, but one of the coolest aspects of the MAcc program is the option to take electives ... lots of electives. Under the new semester requirements, you'll take 31 semester hours of courses. Of those, only 10 semester hours are core requirements! You do the math...okay, okay I'll do it for you...that leaves 21 semester hours of electives!! Sarah asked what some of my favorite electives have been, and I'm more than happy to elaborate on my experience!
So far, I have only one complaint with Fisher and the MAcc Program: There are far too many interesting classes that I want to take, and I know I won’t have time to take them all!
