It is two weeks away from Spring Break and I can honestly say I am truly enjoining all of my classes this semester. I am finishing up my MSA degree this semester by taking my last three required courses and I am starting to delve into my MSF degree with my second course. I am taking Financial Statement Analysis with Professor Bradshaw which is a case-based class with tons of class discussion. He really expects his students to come to class prepared and ready talk. My second accounting course is Assurance and Consulting Services with Professor Husk which is a mixture between cases and lectures. My third and last accounting course is Management of Financial Institutions with Professor Manzon. This class is great because you truly get a deeper understanding of the effects of taxes on various investment opportunities. My fourth and last class is Investments with professor Muravyev.
I am not sure if I have already mentioned this in my previous post but I am a MSA/MSF representative on the Graduate Management Association. The GMA is the elected student government of CSOM and its mission is to "enhance the
professional, academic and social graduate student experience through,
but not limited to, club activities, programming recommendations, and
social events." (For more information on the GMA, check out its homepage: http://www.bc.edu/clubs/gma/index.htm).
Each semester, every program in the Graduate Carroll School of Management is provided with funds to put on some sort of activity for current students. Since we did not use our funds from the previous semester, we decided to have two events this semester. Our first event was a "Welcome Back" event at Jose McIntyre's where students were given drink tickets, finger foods and the opportunity to interact with current classmates outside of a school setting. We had an amazing turnout from both the MSA program and the MSF program and I'm positive everyone had a great time.
