Accounting Graduates Featured in Strategic Finance Journal

Accounting students Hallie D'Agostino and Evan Gallagher were featured in a recent issue of Strategic Finance, the flagship publication of Institute of Management Accountants (IMA).

The article on D'Agostino, titled "When to Take the CMA Exam," discusses her experiences on how she prepared for the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exam. The article is in a Q&A format and provides insight to students who are inquiring about when to take the exam.

Hallie earned her Master of Science in Accounting from Kent State in May 2015. As a graduate student, she served as the president of both Beta Alpha Psi and the Accounting Association, vice president of the IMA student chapter and graduate assistant for the Introduction to Financial Accounting courses. She started her career with Grant Thornton LLP as an audit associate this fall.
