“Simon Business School has a very good reputation around the world. The curriculum is perfect for CPA exam preparation. Also, the Career Management Center (CMC) gives students a lot of help on the job search process. Also, there are a lot of clubs that will occupy my spare time.”

“I was attracted by Simon’s academic reputation and high employment rate. Accounting professors here not only contribute to their own field of study, but are also great teachers. Courses here are designed to help you on the CPA exam, and the CPA pass rate of Simon Accountancy students surpasses the national average.”

“I still remember that after I received the offer from Simon, some newly-admitted students established a WeChat group. We communicated with each other in the group and there were seniors talking about their own experience and their job search process. I personally benefited a lot from this. It is not easy to find a group of motivated and helpful peers. Simon has it.”

“The well-designed curriculum of Accountancy program not only better prepares me for the CPA exam, but also enables me to think more critically and comprehensively as an accounting professional. The great CMC, strong alumni connections, and various kinds of student activities also attracted me to Simon.”

“My favorite part of my Simon experience so far is the New York City trip that the entire MS Accounting program attended in the Fall. We toured PwC in the morning, and several Simon alumni shared their career experiences during an afternoon presentation. The best part of the trip was the networking dinner. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet recent Simon MS Accountancy graduates and for everyone in the program to connect in a setting outside of the classroom.”

“My favorite part of the Simon experience is not a single event but the overall experience every day. I’ve enjoyed learning from distinguished professors alongside bright and motivated students, getting to know other Simon students and alumni, and the ability to pursue personal, career/subject matter, and leadership interests through the various clubs on campus.”
