MPAc Career Advising Structure

One of the benefits of attending the MPAc program is our individual focus on employment and career coaching.


Our Associate Director of Career Services, Lina Tran and Assistant Director of Career Services, Joina Hsiao work individually with students to prepare for the recruitment and job interview process. They help students identify the best career opportunities to pursue.


Some students who enter our MPAc program have focused career objectives in a specific area of accounting; many others do not. Regardless of where you are in the process, we are ready to partner with you to help you achieve your personal career goals through our four key pillars of Career Advising:

  1. Consultations and Workshops
  2. Recruitment and Proseminar
  3. Winter or Spring Internship Opportunity
  4. Career and CPA Exam Preparation
