Sam Heidelk

"I entered the MAcc program because I felt that it would better prepare me for the CPA exam as opposed to getting a second major. Following my undergraduate courses, I was primarily interested in working as an auditor. However, the MAcc program offered courses that sparked my interest in tax accounting. Following graduation from the program, I interviewed at Big 4 firms for both tax and audit positions. I ended up accepting an offer for a tax position thanks to the experiences I received from the MAcc program."
