"This experience allowed me to grow and build my accounting knowledge in such a productive way. I have created relationships I will take with me the rest of my life and I truly did go into the CFE feeling as though nothing could have prepared me better. I’m glad this program exists and appreciate all the work Emily Gray and all the other professors put into making it what it is. I will forever suggest to anyone who asks to do the MAcc at Carleton." - Karissa Lapierre, MAcc/23
