Gain knowledge for a successful future in accounting

I particularly enjoyed the Business Strategy class, where we were divided into teams and competed strategically in a multi-round simulation. It not only reinforced my teamwork skills but also developed my leadership skills. I believe Mercer’s BBA program has well prepared me for a smooth transition from campus to my early career.
