Allison Elia works as the director of operations for a non-profit organization that provides after-school care in inner-city Columbus, Ohio.
She’s also a student in the online format of our Master of Accounting Program. Why? Because, as Allison notes, “at the end of the day, a non-profit is still a business” and businesses thrive on the efficiency that accounting principles unlock.
Allison is an example of a working-professional student who is putting her newly learned accounting skills and knowledge to work right away to make a difference in the organization she serves and the community in which she lives.
