Forensic Accounting Student Aims to Further Career in New Field

Posted by on July 22, 2014

Craig Peterson already had an associate degree from another institution, but he found it wasn’t enough to get him the positions he wanted. He decided to go back to school at Minnesota School of Business, and he’s currently studying forensic accounting at the Blaine campus.

In addition to school, Craig works full time but is still able to attend classes thanks to flexible scheduling options.

“After searching schools with similar programs, I chose MSB because of the variety of online and classroom classes,” he says.

The applied learning projects were another plus, which Craig says allow him to practice the skills he’s learning in the classroom out in the field. Forensic accounting incorporates both financial and auditing aspects of the industry, and Craig strives to be on the forefront of this new career.

“I like that the classes contain information I can use today, in real life situations,” says Craig. “I want to be on the initial wave of people out there.”

Transferring his previously-earned credits from two institutions to Minnesota School of Business was an easy process, and Craig says the entire staff at Minnesota School of Business is supportive in all aspects of his education.

“All of the instructors are professional yet personable,” he explains. “All are approachable and helpful. They’re all there to help you as an individual succeed in your career goals.”
