“The MAcy program was flexible so I could get my education while working multiple jobs and being a single mom to an awesome little girl. The professors use real-world examples from the professional business world, and they prepared me to pass the CPA exam. The professors, advisors, career coaches, and everyone at Texas State cared.”
