My long-term goal is to pursue a career as a CPA in a public accounting firm. For this reason, am seeking a professional accounting program that will further my professional objectives and fulfill my educational requirements. I sincerely believe that, my three years working experience in financial department, coupled with my education in finance and my strong desire for professional growth in my interested area, will enable me to successfully fulfill the Master of Science in Accounting program.
What intrigued me about accounting is the perception of how everyone emphasizes this subject as boring and an easy major. But to me it is more that, find accounting exciting and a beneficial way to help those that are in financial crisis. I like the idea that I can provide assistance to try to one day bring those back to their feet that have been ruined with financial problems. When entering the field of accounting one must have the dedication to do the work and understand the fundamentals.
By listening to the lectures it made me think critically about the financial world and how it operates. It was fascinating to see how there are so many variations to improve a company’s financial status. To me, doing the assigned homework was the most enjoyable experience of accounting. Every day, I would spend a couple hours doing problems, even those that were not assigned, to learn and understand the concepts so that I can be prepare ahead of time. While sometimes get stuck on a problem I would take advantage of the tutoring center to seek further assistance.
In any case, these behaviors I believe will help me flourish in the field of accounting. I have joined an honor business student organization in school called Phi Theta Kappa. I was very grateful for an opportunity like this to arise, because it provided me a chance to associate with many hardworking and strong will individuals. Phi Theta Kappa has given me a wide range of outlooks in the world of business.
