Master’s of accounting online improves student success
From turf to taxes, Boise State Broncos are able to create comprehensive careers at their dream jobs. Mason Hampton, 2018 Mountain West Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year, graduated from the MSA program in 2020. Hampton described the MSA program as “an investment in your future.”
“When you are spending 12-15 hours a week doing school, you have to take a step back and remember you are investing in yourself,” Hampton said. “It’s the accounting term: return on investment. If I can get my degree, then I will be more valuable to a company and more marketable to recruiters.”
