Kenneth Best, MPAc, 2010

I decided to come back to RIC for the MPAc after a few years in public accounting. I knew if I wanted to excel in my field I would need a master's degree and additional credit hours to get a CPA license. The MPAc program at RIC had everything I needed and more.

The faculty was great. They were very knowledgeable and understanding of my busy working schedule. I was able to complete the 30-credit program in just 20 months while working full time and attending night class part time. The small classes were ideal for getting to know the other students and working closely with the faculty. We shared experiences and became quite close at the end of the program. We graduated feeling accomplished and successful.

After I completed the program, I felt more prepared and qualified for my new position as an accounting manager and any new opportunities in the accounting and finance field I may come across. I would recommend this program to any one looking for a great masters program to carry them further in their accounting or finance career. The knowledge and experience that I obtained from the MPAc program was well worth it.
