Welcome Leon Krapf to the Jenkins On Campus MAC program!

About Leon....

Undergrad:  NC State, majored in Business Administration with a minor in Accounting. I also completed the Data Analytics Honors Program.

An interesting fact about me: While I am a full-time student in the MAC program I am also the starting goalkeeper and captain of the NC State Men's Soccer team. 

I am not currently working but I already completed internships with the NC State Treasurer Department and with Credit Suisse. Additionally, I will intern with EY this summer.

Why I chose the Jenkins MAC - During my seven undergrad semesters here on campus, I realized that NC State is the ideal place for people who strive to reach their full potential. At NC State I have everything I need to be successful and I just love the opportunity to combine a high-level athletic career with a top academic education. I decided to join the MAC program because I know I want to go into the Finance industry and after focusing my undergrad degree on Financial Management I thought strengthening my Accounting background through my graduate degree would make me a well-rounded finance professional. 

Glad you are continuing with us Leon! Go Pack! ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿพ

We welcomed 12 new students to the Jenkins MAC online and on campus programs this spring semester. This week we will be highlighting a few of these students.

Welcome Dominique McCormick, Jenkins Online MAC

Undergrad: UNC Charlotte, May 2020, Accounting and minor in Management Information Systems. 

One interesting thing about me: I visited three different countries all in one year. I went to Mexico, Paris, France, and Prague, Czech Republic. 

Why did you choose the Jenkins MAC?  I wanted to attend a school where I knew I'd be encouraged and challenged to learn and grow as a student. I also wanted a program that would prepare me to be a professional in the accounting world.
