As a transfer student, Eric sought a four-year school that would advance his growing interests in accounting—and North Central College fit the bill.

Eric’s accounting degree provided a foundation for performing well in a variety of business fields. Exposure to networking and professional enhancement opportunities, first as a member of the Student Accounting Society and then as its treasurer, influenced this foundation.

Eric also credits North Central professors for their approachability and proximity. He appreciated their guidance, direction and encouragement when he had questions about his academics and career. His professors were always within arm’s reach.

“I had many questions about the profession, internship opportunities, career goals and solidifying my interest and the professors were there beside me throughout the process.”

Thanks to the business confidence Eric gained as a student at North Central, he started his first full-time accounting position at McGladrey.

“After completing your degree at North Central College, you find you’re well-suited to tackle challenges of any kind.”
