“While we are all here to master the nuances of accounting, the program benefits immensely by being embedded in the Stern school. Though it may not be apparent, our professors teach MBA and masters students in other business topics including finance, marketing, management, and data analysis. These different perspectives (backed by real-world experience) bring the topics covered in class to life. Another reason I decided on Stern was the high-impact focus of the program - we are fully accredited for the CPA and have touched on many business topics by the time we graduate. This is particularly manifest in our MBA 'case-study' approach and the pace with which we explore advanced level concepts.”
