2007 B.S. in Business, with a concentration in Accounting
Jaime graduated with a perfect 4.0 grade-point average.
“I am extremely proud of that. I chose my major because I am really good at math and numbers and I enjoy working with anything that is structured and organized, which is what accounting is based upon. The entire business and corporate world is completely fascinating to me and I can not wait to become involved in it after graduation.”
As a student, Jaime worked part time at JP Morgan Chase bank. She aspires to be an internal auditor for a corporation or become involved in the emerging fraud investigation field for the government.
Jaime decided to attend PNC because it was close to home, and that convenience would allow her to continue to work. Plus, she found the PNC Department of Business to be excellent at helping students achieve their goals.
As a student, Jaime faced some challenges – working 33 hours a week, attending PNC and living on her own. She credits her mother as being her source of constant encouragement for me, “She has always helped me to keep balanced between work and school,” said Jaime.
Today Jaime is quick to recommend PNC to prospective students. “PNC offers smaller class sizes, which I feel are beneficial to the learning process. PNC supports its students in any way it can whether through interesting classes, campus activities, advisors or teachers. If a student has the desire to learn and receive a degree, PNC is the best place to be..PNC kept me completely engaged in learning and I will remember my experiences there for years to come.
In the future, Jaime plans to earn her MBA. She also wants to work toward her certified fraud examiner (CFE) and certified managerial accountant (CMA) licenses.
