Quote that reads: "During my time at Charlotte, I’ve participated in four different internships, and each of my roles were directly related to my accounting major! Getting involved with the University Career Center, the Business Learning Community and the National Association of Black Accountants really enhanced my professional skills and introduced me to great professors and advisors. Through my internships, I’ve learned so many skills that have helped me be successful at Charlotte.”
