Experience Academic Excellence


Being part of the Costakos College of Business has allowed me to immerse myself into the world of accounting and finance through rigorous courses, research opportunities and support from faculty members. I have been able to complete my business honors thesis and have learned valuable communication skills that helped me receive two exceptional internships. WP has given me the tools to jumpstart my career.
