Heather Yates, Accounting Graduate, 2014, Koch Industries Employee
My degree from Friends was absolutely essential in making me successful in my career. Understanding of economics and finance has helped me navigate the commodities trading world, knowledge in management has helped me grasp company structure and the bigger picture of my company and my extensive accounting specialization has made me easily hirable and has given me a substantial foundation on which to build further knowledge, specific to my business.
I feel that my education from Friends meets or exceeds the standards set by bigger universities. The small class sizes enabled professors to move at a comfortable pace and allowed me to learn in an environment where I could ask questions. The mentorships that I have found in the professors at Friends are what made my education truly memorable. These mentors have spent countless hours outside the classroom giving career advice, sharing their own experiences and preparing me for the real world.
