The accounting program at the University of Arizona was a great experience and prepared me for the career ahead of me. The program really gives so many opportunities to be involved with the major as well as hosts job fairs and information sessions to truly understand and gain experience for your future.
After 5 years in undergrad and a few degrees, I have a well-rounded skill set that allows me to be an optimal choice for any industry. It would be my dream to work in intelligence and analytical for the Federal Government, but I have been prepared to work in both the private and public sectors. Although the school is not in a prominent location for my career path, I was able to learn and study both at the University and abroad with the guidance of intelligent and knowledgeable professors. I am working my way through my Masters degree currently and would not have changed my undergraduate experiences for anything. I am prepared for the "real world" in terms of education and preparation, now I just have to find a government job looking for my broad set of skills.
University of Arizona, like most other colleges, is intimidating upon first glance. However, once you become fully acquainted with your college--Humanities in my case-- and your academic advisors, you'll realize this is one of many great decisions you'll make while attending the U of A. Honestly, I did not believe that I would end up in the College of humanities studying English as I had originally started in the Physiology major; once I became more sure of what I wanted to accomplish during my college career, everything just clicked with English at the forefront of my interests.The professors have one goal in mind and that is making sure every student succeeds in this college; multiple professors even put in extra office hours for the more difficult assignments and exams. Although English is not for every one, the English program at the U of A will make you glad you sought to pursue this field of study and more comfortable with all of its aspects.
I attended the Eller College of Business and majored in MIS/OM. I would say between all the business courses and the specific major courses you will get an education above others at other business schools. I have been always able to find employment and the UofA's network base is extremely strong.
It's a huge school, so the experience can't be summed up by any single person. My brother went to the U of A too, but our experiences we drastically different. Nonetheless, we both loved our college experience. I highly recommend Eller College of Management. There is a selective application process to join the college-- you must pass an admissions test and interviews during the second semester of sophomore year. This weeds out students that don't take academics seriously, which is nice because Eller has a lot of group projects.
