As part of business education website Poets&Quants’ article on the value of master’s programs in accounting, alum Zavier Webb recounted his positive experiences in the Commerce School’s M.S. in Accounting Program.
As a representative of the UVA McIntire graduate accounting program, Webb joined 12 other graduates from schools across the U.S. interviewed about their experiences and who mostly went on to work for large firms in their chosen career. Webb, a Deal Advisory Associate at KPMG, discusses his pride at being both a first-generation college graduate and part of the small minority of Black CPAs working in the U.S.
The P&Q feature highlights the appealing aspects of the program that led Webb to McIntire, noteworthy accomplishments he realized as a graduate student, and favorite courses. Webb also details how the Commerce School faculty and his classmates enhanced the value and learning experiences during his time. He closes with offering advice to hopeful applicants and his favorite memories of the nine-month, STEM-designated program.
