This is possible at Wake Forest University as it provides the platform through assisting students to get professional internships, which in most cases translates to job offers and opportunities. Through this graduate program, I will be able to achieve my goals.

The quality of the work that I will provide will guarantee the organization increased annual returns, which will be achieved through accurate reporting of financial returns. At the managerial level, I will be able to apply my accounting skills in making quick and rational decisions that will increase the financial performance of the organization. Further, I will seek to mentor other young accountants in helping them develop the necessary skills required in the accounting career. Assisting organizations to solve their financial problems will increase the GDP, which will result in creation of employment opportunities for the young aspiring individuals. Additionally, auditing will help in tracking companies that are exploiting innocent individuals of their hard-earned money. Finally, better performing companies will provide a competitive business environment.
