Saint Mary's Testimonials
“The undergraduate Accounting Program at SMC offers the foundation an individual needs to move forward with pursuing the CPA license, joining the workforce out of college, or even pursuing a master's in accounting. What resonated with me from the Saint Mary’s Accounting program aside from the professors’ dedication to my success was certainly the Accounting Analytics course which provides the student with an understanding of the information systems in accounting. This is applicable to the workforce as these programs are key to better performance and efficient data analysis and visualization.”
