"The Anderson School is a place where if students put in the time and investment into themselves, the returns they will receive are enormous. Anderson prepared me well and has opened up countless doors of opportunity for me. The accounting program here is top of the line. You could not pay for a better accounting education. Thanks to Anderson, I was able to receive full time employment offers before graduating with my BBA and secure an internship with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Denver, Colorado."
