Pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting

“I came into this mentorship program with an open mind as this was my first mentorship program I’ve ever been a part of. I didn’t know what to expect but this experience has been rewarding. Meeting with an actual professional with many years of experience in the Accounting field who was willing to share his insights both in the professional and academic worlds was very informative. The highlight of the program was having the opportunity to visit an Accounting firm where I had the chance to meet with interns, MSU alumni, and see how a day is spent at an Accounting firm. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in such a program that brings academia and business together.”

Gain Work Experience: Experiential Education

Cooperative Education Program
Cooperative Education, commonly known as a ‘co-op’, is a structured, academic-based program in which a student receives academic credit for participating in a co-op for the full length of one academic semester.
