Graduate Dorothy Larson, Online MST’13
It’s been interesting and a lot of people, because I’ve been in the tax profession for a number of years, a lot of people asked me why I was getting an advanced degree and didn’t I already know all that? And actually it’s been really helpful, the research, the skills, the tools, just refining my professional knowledge has been – it’s just been extremely useful. It’s been amazing how often something would come up in a class and would come up with a client at the same time and I was able to mesh those skills and the tools with the needs of my client.
I would say look around, make sure that you think it’s the best fit for you. Make sure that you think that learning online works for you because there is a lot of self-discipline involved. But then that’s one of the best benefits of the program. It actually taught me better disciplined skills as well. I would just tell ‘em to compare to other programs and I think they’d be really impressed with the Northeastern program.
