Accounting remains a solid and sought-after career for so many. According to Forbes.com, “accounting has moved far beyond mere bookkeeping and payroll, and it’s taking an increasingly strategic role for forward-thinking businesses, snd technologies such as cloud-based data management, process automation, and advanced analytics are poised to further elevate accountants in new and empowering ways.”
At Juniata College, we agree and plan to be at the forefront of helping students prepare for their careers and passing the CPA exam.(more…)
You’ve probably read many student blogs that describe college as a “life-changing experience,” but I am here to challenge that notion and say that being a Juniatian is more meaningful than that; it is a life-enhancing experience – it makes you more aware of how exciting life can be.
I don’t particularly think that you become a Juniatian; I think that you have always been a Juniatian, and all it took was enrolling to get to the place where you belong. There is a special thing about choosing to attend a liberal arts college like Juniata because you learn a lot about yourself and discover new aspects of your identity that you might never have thought existed. It makes you feel like you can transform the meaning of the word “education” and truly get out of your comfort zone to venture into different areas of knowledge and to learn new life skills.
If you asked me two years ago where I would be today, I would never have guessed that I would be sitting here writing this blog. I did not know that I was looking for Juniata until Juniata found me.
Before coming to campus, I was an online student for a year. Even though all of my interactions with people from Juniata were limited to a computer screen, I built connections very fast, and before I knew it, I was part of a community. When I finally got to PA this year, I was able to truly capture the beauty and greatness of our 300-acre campus and meet the people who contribute to its greatness. I was able to immerse myself in American culture, be part of traditions, and make new ones. Before coming to Juniata, I never thought of getting tackled by the rugby team as something that could happen. When I got here, I was able to take part in the storming of the arch and get tackled by the rugby team! I didn’t make it through, but I got very close! (The trick is to be a silent attacker.)(more…)
Organizational Leadership continues to be both a buzzword and a solid career path. Leaders who have formal education and willingness to continue learning will find themselves at the heads of companies and organizations over the next decade. The last two years have shown us that work environments and work requirements are ever-evolving. New leaders will need to be able to evolve with those changes. Flexibility, fast-changing technology needs, diversity, conflict management, a need for collaboration across hybrid workplaces, and a constant focus on innovation to remain competitive are driving the requirements for future leaders. Those stepping into leadership must be able to handle all that and more.(more…)
The ultimate goal of the Juniata Masters of Business Program is to develop technical expertise in our graduates (in the functional areas of their focuses: accounting, finance, marketing, economics, human resource management, and operations). But, more importantly, to teach, mentor to, and inspire innovative leadership by providing meaningful international study, project management, and consulting experiences through executive mentors and hands-on business opportunities.
Bryce Walter is just one of our graduates putting this experience to work.(more…)
2022 is expected to remain a jobseeker’s market. That means many Americans are looking at entirely new and exciting career changes. They are willing to take a step back, look at market demand, and do the things required to enter that field – even exploring a master’s or graduate degree.(more…)
