“My experience at EY opened a lot of doors for me and my engagement team was very inspirational and supportive. I am so grateful for the hands-on experience...Accounting has so many subjects within the field itself, and the MSA program has provided me with the opportunity to study all of them, thereby expanding my knowledge of the industry."
