I'm a senior accounting major at a top 25 college. I've got a 3.9, gmat 760. I originally planned to get my master's in accounting from my current school next year. I've had trouble finding a job/internship in public accounting this recruiting season which has led me to explore other options. Over the past year I kind of regret not double majoring in finance and accounting, so I've started looking into graduate finance programs. I like Villanova for the fact that it's really close to home (would be able to live at home) and it seems to be designed for kids straight out of undergrad with no work experience. I still plan on taking the CPA exam, which I will be eligible to take upon graduating with my BS but I would like to expand my career options. I don't want to pigeonhole myself in accounting (I have only taken one intro finance class), especially since as of late I've been more interested in finance. Can anyone who went through the application process or the actual program tell me about it? I've read some other threads about it but I'm curious as to the job placement for the program. I know that past placement rates are probably not a good indicator of current placement rates due to the economy, but I'm just curious in general terms if employers value grads of this MSF program. Also, if anyone can comment on the kinds of kids who get fellowships that would be great.
AJK, with that GMAT and a desire to go the PubAcg route, I would encourage you to look at Texans and UNC. Their MSAccounting programs are very good and will surely place you into a Big4 firm. Also, you are sure to get in. I do know that OSU's MSAccounting program is a very good accounting/finance hybrid. You have a lot of freedom course wselection wise, and you will be given very good access to recruiters.
