Marshall Spotlight

Not having a background in finance, Tony did not anticipate entering the world of accounting; however, an offer from accounting giant PricewaterhouseCoopers was too intriguing to pass up. What was even more surprising was that the one-year, intensive master's in accounting (MAcc) degree from the USC Leventhal School of Accounting was actually fun. "They teach us so much more than just accounting. It's a well-rounded program that really teaches you how to build, grow, and be successful in whatever endeavor you want to undertake."
