Representatives from N.C. State University's Master of Accountancy program were on campus recently to speak to Catawba's aspiring accountants about their graduate program. The presentation was held in the Tom Smith Auditorium of Ketner Hall on October 8.
Several Catawba students in recent years have embraced this opportunity, including 2009 Catawba accounting graduate Savanna Farris who is currently enrolled in the program at NCSU. Farris spoke about her experiences during the presentation.
The NCSU Master of Accounting (M. Acc) program is nationally ranked currently as one of the top 30 schools in the country for the program.
