Career Opportunities

Securing employment upon graduation is a critical task for every student, but the MSACCY program has historically been successful in helping our graduates become employed. Job placement of our Spring 2022 MSACCY graduating class was 94% upon graduation. Our program is supported by the Rockwell Career Center which deals solely with C. T. Bauer College of Business students and alumni. The Rockwell Career Center is a full-service career center offering resources and assistance in the formulation and implementation of their career plans — including activities such as résumé writing, mock interviews, accounting fairs, and coordination of recruiting events with employers. Having a career center dedicated exclusively to the needs of Bauer business students is a significant resource and distinguishes our program from that of other institutions.
