Graduate Ambassador at Portland State University
Graduate Program: Master of Taxation
Program Delivery: Part Time
Anticipated Graduation Date: 2021
I see myself pursuing a career in Public Accounting. I plan to sit for the CPA exam after my graduation. My main goal is to learn something new every day and become a better version of myself!
I am from Hyderabad, India, and started Master of Taxation within four months of moving to the US( still exploring Portland!) I have an honors degree in Commerce from India and did a few internships in different areas of accounting. My first full-time job after college was with Franklin Templeton Investments (Hyderabad) in the Mutual Funds operations department serving the NYSE. I was actively involved in volunteering and literary clubs.
Being an international student, I was nervous if I could fit in, but PSU is exceptionally welcoming. I believe in Diversity and Inclusion, and PSU is everything about it. Everyone from the administrative staff to the Director is helpful and approachable. Though the MT program is online, it is structured to be interactive, and you get many opportunities to shine and build a network.
Firstly, congratulations on deciding to enroll in a graduate program! It is an important milestone and never start with a doubt. Ask as many questions as possible, and please feel free to utilize the support available from the School of Business.
