Watch: Recent Graduate Perspectives – MS in Accountancy

Preparation is key. Scott Litvin and Sisi (Gloria) Meng, members of the MS in Accountancy Class of 2019, found the combination of completing the Benet Career Management Center’s online modules before arriving in Rochester and the program’s coursework, which readied them for the CPA exam and for their on-the-job responsibilities, to be a powerful duo.

An MS in Accountancy from Simon will prepare you to take—and pass—the CPA exam. In fact, Simon’s 2017 CPA pass rate was 26% higher than the national average.

Watch: Recent Graduate Perspectives – MS in Marketing Analytics

Andrea Pinto Payares and Jingpeng (Susan) Ai, members of the MS in Marketing Analytics Class of 2019, had varying reasons for choosing Simon, but it was the right fit for both of them. In particular, they found value in the optional internship track, which allows students to extend the program to strengthen their résumés and gain professional experience before heading into their full-time roles. As Andrea puts it, an internship is “kind of an interview process—you’re interviewing them to see if you believe they are a good fit, and they’re also seeing if you’re a good fit.”

An MS in Marketing Analytics from Simon will teach you strategies and skills, including R programming, to make you the go-to person for evidence-based information, insights, and answers.

Watch: Recent Graduate Perspectives – MS in Finance

Fit matters. Though they came to Simon’s MS in Finance program with different aspirations and goals, both Dilnoza Sidikova and Yufeng (Mike) Hu from the Class of 2019 were drawn to the School’s community. In Yufeng’s words, Simon’s “culture of inclusion” helped him realize it was the right place for his specialized master’s studies.

In Simon’s MS in Finance program, you will be taught by leading scholars, and our Khani-de Silva Investment Lab—with more than 15 Bloomberg Terminals—lets you monitor and analyze real-time financial market data. You’ll graduate ready to do more with numbers than crunch them.

Charlie Braunlich ’19 and Tuba Dar ’19 knew that the ability to parse and analyze data to make decisions would open up a world of opportunities for them—and they knew Simon’s MS in Business Analytics was the program to build those skills. They reflect on their experience and touch on the programming languages they learned, the importance of co-curricular activities, and how students from any background can succeed at Simon.
