Crunching Numbers

Saint Anselm alumna Linh Nguyen is now earning her master's in accountingLinh Nguyen majored in accounting because she loves working with numbers and the accounting field has a hot market in the employer world.

Linh graduated from Saint Anselm in 2013 and now is earning her master's degree in accounting at the University of Rochester in New York.

While attending Saint Anselm, Linh interned at two different companies to get some real life experience. The first was at HSBC Bank in the personal financial service department. She then worked as an accounting intern at Phillips Electronics. Linh considers her studies and interning opportunities at Saint Anselm top of the line.

"My accounting education measures up with the best programs around and includes all the same courses you'll find at larger schools," Linh says. She believes the biggest difference between Saint Anselm and normal business schools is the variety of courses and subjects offered.

"Saint Anselm College blended liberal arts with accounting which I liked because I didn't want all my courses in one area." Not only is this multitude of learning interesting but it also has given her a background in communication, both oral and written.

"My liberal arts education has already paid off because the conversations I've had with employers have gone way beyond the accounting topic."

After her master's degree, Linh hopes to earn her CPA and eventually work for one of the big four public accounting firms. Linh has big dreams and like the numbers she works with the possibilities are infinite.
