Edgewood allowed me the opportunity to retool for an accounting career…  and worked with me to help achieve my goals.  When I decided to return to school, through the Adult Accelerated and then the M.S. programs, I was guided in both course selection and course projects relevant to achieving my career goals.  I was challenged and encouraged in ways that allowed me to transition from student to accountant, knowing I was well prepared for my new career.
