I was able to take what I learned from my accounting classes and apply it in my internship—it was just amazing.

It was so reassuring to walk in, and, without any previous experience, I was able to crank the work back out to them. They told me I exceeded their expectations. Manchester's accounting program is tough, but it was absolutely worth it.

 Accounting at Manchester University


What do Manchester University accounting majors do after they graduate?

Manchester accounting graduates are in demand. They are often in positions to be able to choose among multiple offers, and they go to work for some of the largest and most prestigious firms in the country. One hundred percent of graduates (2002-06) had full-time jobs in their field within six months of graduating. Here's an example of what some of last year's graduates experienced as they made transitions into the professional world of accounting:

Derek Hammond, Class of 2007
Derek had four interviews in October prior to graduating the following May. One company offered Derek an internship; the other three offered him full-time employment within three weeks of the interviews. Derek accepted a position with Katz, Sapper & Miller, LLP in Indianapolis.

Jodi Dell, Class of 2007
After a January internship with Mannia Green, LLP, Jodi was asked to join the company full time. Mannia Green offers accounting, tax and consulting services to clients in Indiana, southern Michigan and northwestern Ohio.

Norma Rojas, Class of 2007
Norma interviewed with BKD, one of the top 10 accounting firms in the U.S., and she and accepted an offer 14 months before graduating from Manchester. 

Tiffany Portz, Class of 2007
Prior to graduation, Tiffany was offered a position as a staff accountant with Baden, Gage & Schroeder, one of the largest certified public accounting and business consulting firms based in Indiana. 

Tai Cerney, Class of 2007
Tai participated in a summer student leadership program with Ernst & Young after her junior year at Manchester. Nine months prior to graduating, they offered her a full-time position. Fortune 500 lists Ernst & Young 25th among the top 100 companies to work for in 2007. 

Angie Wilcox, Class of 2007
Pursued by Ernst & Young in her junior year, Angie first had an internship and then accepted a full-time offer in auditing with the Big 4 firm in Indianapolis. Ernst & Young employs 114,000 people in 700 locations and 140 countries around the globe.
