These opportunities are not often found at other schools, and Notre Dame is solely responsible for opening that avenue for me. These career opportunities come from an incredibly strong alumni network. And the career center is top-notch.

7 PETER EASTON I think the traits to be successful are a willingness to think critically and creatively and being interested in broadening horizons. Peter Easton joined the University in 2003, being drawn to Notre Dame by its distinguished finance and accounting faculty, intelligent students, and ample resources for research. Since then, he has focused on both accounting and finance. His research explores corporate valuation and he teaches on the topics of financial statement analysis and valuation. I think the key reason valuation is becoming a very important part of what accountants do is a result of new standards that require values to be reported on the balance sheet. Beyond teaching, Professor Easton is the co-author of the widely used textbook EXPERTISE Financial Accounting for MBAs, he serves as editor of two leading accounting Corporate Valuation journals, and he publishes his own research. Additionally he is the director of Financial Statement Analysis the Center for Accounting Research and Education, which holds conferences worldwide. Though he finished his education at Berkeley, he insists his students teach and challenge him every day. EXPERTISE Business Law JAMES O BRIEN Federal and State Taxation Nonprofit Law Legal Environment When new college graduates ponder where they will be in five or 10 years, many of them simply don t know. I enjoy showing them their potential I enjoy watching them significantly broaden their future options by earning an M.S. in Accountancy degree from Notre Dame. A Double Domer with both his BBA and JD from the University of Notre Dame, James O Brien believes the only thing better than being a student here is being one of its professors. Notre Dame s M.S. in Accountancy program has a great curriculum, highly intelligent students, and unparalleled career placement statistics. These educational qualities, combined with the University s rich tradition and strong spiritual character, provide our students with an amazing experience. After several years as a public accountant for the firm Crowe Chizek (now Crowe Horwath), Professor O Brien returned to ND to pursue a law degree. During that time, he taught as an adjunct professor in the Mendoza College of Business. After spending many years practicing law, Professor O Brien joined the Mendoza College of Business faculty in Today he serves as the assistant chair of the Accountancy Department. With a reputation for engaging his students in the classroom, Professor O Brien attracts more than two-thirds of all M.S. in Accountancy students to his Advanced Business Law course elective. When not in the classroom, Professor O Brien serves on the board of directors for local nonprofit Hannah and Friends. Recently, he was inducted to the highly selective Indiana State Board of Accountancy. JIM SEIDA Initially drawn to Notre Dame s Catholic identity, Jim Seida, a father of six, joined the University faculty in Since then, he says his research and his teaching consistently influence one another, forcing both to constantly progress and improve. A specialist in taxes and business strategy, Professor Seida is an accomplished researcher who has had his work published in the Accounting Review, National Tax Journal, the Journal of Accounting and Economics. His research also has been cited by the U.S. Treasury. In 2003, Professor Seida testified before the U.S. Senate Committee about Enron s controversial tax information. What many people fail to recognize is that tax-related decisions have cash flow implications that impose other costs on the firm. I try to teach students how to weigh all the factors and balance given tax and other considerations when making tax decisions. Professor Seida earned his doctorate in accounting from Texas A&M, EXPERTISE earned a master s in accountancy from the University of Illinois, and Income Tax, Corporate Tax graduated with his bachelor s in accounting from Arizona State University. Accounting for Income Taxes Previously he taught at Indiana University and KPMG. JAMES FUEHRMEYER A key to success in the M.S. in Accountancy arena is an appreciation for consultation with other people and an openness to gaining input from your colleagues. Prior to joining the Mendoza College of Business faculty in 2006, James Fuehrmeyer spent 27 years with Deloitte & Touche, 18 of those years as partner. A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy (BS) and University of Chicago (MBA), Professor Fuehrmeyer spent years on Notre Dame s campus recruiting for Deloitte and visiting his two daughters, both of whom are ND alumnae. One thing that I strongly emphasize with my students is the significance of communication. They must not be afraid to ask questions, and they must not be afraid to speak up when they have something to say. The result is a student who is not only smart, but also one who has learned how to get along with his or her peers. This translates into professionals who are capable of working in harmony with their colleagues. Known as a dynamic professor with impressive work experience, Professor EXPERTISE Fuehrmeyer received the Blessed Basil Anthony Moreau, C.S.C. Outstanding Auditing and Assurance Services Undergraduate Teaching Award in Financial Reporting
8 STUDENT LIFE The M.S. in Accountancy program is widely known for its stellar rankings, its premier career placement percentages, and its outstanding faculty who remain dedicated to the success of their students. But a Notre Dame education extends well beyond statistics and classroom coursework. As our students grow academically, they also grow into well-rounded individuals who embody the four tenets on which Our Lady s University was built: academics, community, service and spirituality. Academics While our M.S. in Accountancy program ensures our students receive the 150 credits necessary for certification and licensure as a CPA, it also provides them with several unique opportunities to sharpen their business skills beyond accounting. Regardless of which specialty track our students select (tax services or financial reporting and assurance services) everyone enrolled in the M.S. in Accountancy program can take MBA and finance electives to meet their degree requirements. Additionally, our students may take part in a one-week study-abroad excursion in China or they can challenge themselves by participating in corporate live cases with Fortune 500 businesses all of which help develop well-rounded graduates who can apply a wider variety of skills to their chosen careers. Community Whether you re an ND undergrad or you re coming to our campus for the first time, the bonds you form with your classmates will be among the tightest you ll ever know. When you join Notre Dame, you not only join the tradition, you join the family. Most M.S. in Accountancy students actively participate in a variety of business clubs and honor societies, such as Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) and the M.S. in Accountancy Association (MSAA). These groups not only provide students with access to a wealth of career-enhancing programs and assist students in establishing professional contacts, they also serve as a great foundation for forming friendships with your M.S in Accountancy peers. But the bonds you create at Notre Dame won t end once you graduate: Currently, the Notre Dame family is comprised of more than 135,000 living alumni who are engaged in some 220 domestic and 50 international Notre Dame clubs around the world and our alumni are as loyal to each other as they are to Our Lady s University. Whether you are seeking professional connections after graduation or are simply looking for a friend as you transfer to a new city for a job, members of the Notre Dame family will be there to embrace you
9 STUDENT LIFE Spirituality Founded in 1842 by Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., the University of Notre Dame has forever been rooted in its Catholic faith. This dedication to faith and spirituality remains today, as evidenced by the host of chapels and sacred places throughout campus. What happens after our students have earned their MSA degree? Heavily recruited by the top finance and accounting firms, most of our graduates immediately enter the professional arena and thrive in their chosen careers. Others, however, are drawn to the world of academia and opt to pursue a Ph.D. in accounting. Since 2000, nearly 20 of our M.S. in Accountancy graduates have entered Ph.D. programs. Here, students learn that being ethical and being profitable are not mutually exclusive. Our case-study approach in the classroom teaches ethical decision making in a collaborative environment. Our M.S. in Accountancy program develops values-based professionals who understand and practice ethical business strategies. Service Giving back encompasses a variety of initiatives for our students. Several of them volunteer to participate in Habitat for Humanity projects. And many come up with new ways of giving back, for example developing a program at the local Center for the Homeless the helps prepare its residents for job interviews and filling out tax returns. These are just a few of the service initiatives our students participate in while enrolled in the M.S. in Accountancy program. Other projects have included the following: Helping the organization No Parent Left Behind earn nonprofit status by assisting with the group s budgeting, planning and other vital paperwork; Assembling bikes and donating them to the South Bend Boys and Girls Club; Raking leaves for members of the South Bend community who are elderly or disabled; Participating in the Mendoza College of Business Giving Tree program, which provides much-needed items to groups such as the YWCA Women and Children s Shelter of St. Joseph County, the Women s Care Center, and St. Margaret s House; Tutoring and mentoring students at Riley High School. Another way our students give back to the community is by participating in a service-learning course, Income Taxation of International Individuals. As a service-learning offering, M.S. in Accountancy students taking the course are involved in the international component of the Tax Assistance Program (TAP), an important initiative that provides free federal and state income tax preparation to foreign students and foreign visiting scholars. Since TAP s inception in 2002, nearly 7,000 taxpayers have received assistance from our M.S. in Accountancy students. The Notre Dame M.S. in Accountancy degree can help launch your career with top accounting and finance firms all over the world, including the Big Four. Ninety-nine percent of students from our 2012 class were placed with jobs in their selected field. Notre Dame is way ahead of other schools when it comes to career opportunities, says 2011 MSA graduate Rich Grieder. I came here not even knowing what city I wanted to work in, but that didn t matter. Recruiters are so impressed with the caliber of Notre Dame graduates that they work with us in terms of geographical locations. M.S. in Accountancy students receive career assistance from a variety of sources while in our program. These resources include the M.S. in Accountancy staff, the premier University of Notre Dame Career Center, and the loyal Notre Dame Alumni family. The Notre Dame alumni network is incredibly strong, Grieder agrees. Being an alumnus of Notre Dame means you are a part of a family. I never imagined that I could develop so many close relationships in a one-year program, but the students really rally around each other. When it is all said and done, we are all fighting for everyone to succeed.

At Notre Dame, I discovered a program that encouraged me to question why and how the business world functions when there aren t always a clear set of rules, Griffin says. It was there that the seeds for a doctoral dissertation were planted. While the thought of pursuing his doctorate germinated, Griffin didn t act on it right away. Instead he joined the corporate world at BorgWarner, Inc. and Deloitte & Touche, LLP. Still, the desire to continue his education didn t subside. I wanted to generate knowledge where there was none or where there was uncertainty, Griffin says. In pursuing a Ph.D., you can learn things no one has ever thought to learn about before. With the guidance of Notre Dame professor Dave Ricchiute, Griffin designed a dissertation that delved into how auditors deal with uncertainty in their decisions.* Professor Ricchiute teaches a course that exposes students to the research process and the academic side of accounting, and is considered a prep course for the Ph.D. After earning his doctorate from the University of Georgia, Griffin returned to Notre Dame as an assistant professor. The following prerequisite coursework is required by applicants to the program: ACCOUNTING: Measurement and Disclosure I (Intermediate Accounting I) Measurement and Disclosure II (Intermediate Accounting II) Accounting for Decision Making and Control (Cost Accounting) Audit & Assurance Services Federal Taxation OTHER: (Introductory Level) Finance Management Marketing Macroeconomics Microeconomics Information Technology / Computer Science Statistics HOW TO APPLY We highly recommend you apply to the M.S. in Accountancy program online at as this will expedite your application review by the Admissions Committee.
