Professional Profile:

How Did Beacom Prepare Me For Success?

The program at Beacom has a great balance between classroom learning and real world experiences. It was very easy for me during my internship to apply theories and concepts from the classroom to the work I was performing on the job.  Outside of the classroom Beacom provided me opportunities to meet potential employers and helped me build my network.    . 

Internships:

I was an  audit intern at KPMG in Omaha, NE. During my internship I was able to get an inside look on several industries that included non-profit, health care, manufacturing, and transportation. It was a true reflection of what I could expect as a full time associate with the firm.  

Other Thoughts?

The faculty at Beacom are very concerned with continuous improvement. They take their positions seriously and always push the bar higher.
