Requirements

Julia Petrillo

Accelerated Full-time MBA (Management) UG 2019, GR2020
Business Development Coordinator, Guaranteed Rate

Professor Ostrowski has been a wonderful resource as his lessons span beyond classroom learning.

He provides coaching and opportunities to network- because of him, my classmates and I attended a professional networking event in Worcester. There, I was able to practice skills that were learned in class to then expand my network.
Kayla Smith

Accelerated Full-time MBA (Management) UG 2017, GR 2019
Custom Communications Specialist at Virgin Pulse

In my role as a Communications Specialist, I put my undergrad and graduate experiences to good use!

My advice is to get to know your professors, they will not only teach you, but may guide you towards an experience you may never have tried before. You will always be encouraged to expand your network, so do it! (And Hound Nation is much larger than you would imagine)!
Kevin Peterssen

Accelerated Full-time MBA (Management) 2012
Vice President of Commercial Banking, United Bank

My business expertise and confidence have grown tremendously.

As a trained accountant, the program helped me develop expertise in other key areas of business which immeasurably boosted my confidence to voice opinions, make presentations, and take a leadership role at work.
Jessica Fandino

Accelerated Full-time MBA (Management) GR 2020

I gained a lot of value from the events and resources Assumption has to offer.

I gained a lot of value from the events and resources Assumption has to offer. Without the professional development and networking tools I gained at Assumption, it would've taken me double the amount of time to gain those skills and experiences.
Nicole Marshall

Management 2017
Client Relationship Representative, IBM

Assumption provided me with motivating professors who cultivated my knowledge and skills.

The classes I took at Assumption truly helped me and gave me the extensive knowledge I needed to become well-rounded and knowledgeable of the business world.
Kathleen Hurley

Management 2017
Attending Law School, Hofstra Law

Through community service opportunities and classes, I learned I was passionate about social justice

This experience influenced me to pursue legal work for my career. I hope to become a criminal or human rights lawyer following law school.
John McDonagh

Accounting 2020
Accounting Intern, DCK Worldwide

My internship has helped me better prepare myself for my future career as an accountant.

I have learned it is important to never be afraid to ask questions or ask for help because it is better to complete a project correctly than having to redo it. I have also learned how important excel is and I hope to continue to learn more about it.
Catherine Waclawik

Accounting 2020
Tax Intern, King MacNamara Moriarty LLP

I’ve learned the importance of being resourceful and knowing when to ask for help.

I was given the opportunity to prepare tax returns, handle bookkeeping, perform bank reconciliations, and even received a client of my own. I encourage all students to take advantage of all opportunities to network. You may be surprised what can come out of it!
Victoria Stowell

Accounting 2020
Audit and Attest Staff, Citrin Cooperman

My success is a result of the faculty’s extensive knowledge and the Career and Internship Fair.

Assumption prepared me by guiding me through the job search process and helping with my resume, cover letters, and any other questions I had. Take advantage of all the opportunities that Assumption provides!
Sean O'Rourke

Accounting 2020
Business Tax Services Department, Deloitte & Touche Boston Office

At the Accounting Career Fair, I networked with several different companies - including Deloitte.

Because of Assumption, I have the understanding of the important accounting principles necessary to do the job, but I was also given the skills that go beyond the field of accounting which allowed me to distinguish myself from other applicants.
William Shaw

Accounting 2020
Financial Services Assurance Intern, Ernst & Young; Pursuing Master's Degree in Assumption's MBA CPA Track Program

I am proud to be part of an institution that cares so much about its students' success and growth.

My professors have helped me not only learn the class material, but they were also there to help me get a job and to prepare me for the real world after graduation.
