Kyle Goewert is earning an accelerated Master of Accountancy degree.
Why I chose Missouri State: MSU has a well-accredited business program, and I liked the feel after taking a campus tour.
Why I chose my program: MSU offers an accelerated five-year graduate program for accounting, so I will have earned both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in four and a half years.
Being a graduate assistant in the School of Accountancy: First, it makes Missouri State an incredible value since I receive tuition plus a stipend each month. Being the graduate assistant also allows me to form close relationships with professors as well as other students.
How my courses have prepared me for my career: My favorite classes have been the accounting information systems courses because we use software programs that we would use in the real world at an accounting firm. In other courses I have done research that compares and contrasts American and international accounting standards.
How faculty help students succeed: Professors send out emails to make students aware of events and opportunities to help them better themselves and succeed. The professors I have formed relationships with have been willing to go out of their way to write recommendation letters for me, and like to stay posted on what is going on with school and my job search.
Describe the student body of Missouri State: Determined and prideful community!
