Andrew Cobb, MSA '07, prepared to launch his career in accounting at Boston College. After a successful tenure with PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Andrew has now transitioned to financial services, and now works as a Finance/Tax Manager at Bain Capital Public Equity.

“As I finished my undergraduate co-op program at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) through Northeastern University, I realized that an MSA degree would further enhance my technical skills and propel me to the next level in the public accounting field.  At PwC, the senior executives had high regard for the MSA Program at Boston College.  Although the flexibility and reputation of the program were enough for me to enroll, the experience itself was tremendously rewarding.  Not only did I learn the mechanics of accounting, but I also developed a deeper knowledge of the foundational elements.

Of all my classes at BC, personal wealth planning gave me the biggest career advantage.  It led to my job in the Private Company Services tax group at PwC and to my current position, Investment Accounting Manager, The Kraft Group.  I was looking for an edge, and I succeeded by adding a BC education to my résumé.  The Boston College network extends across New England and around the globe—and that was another reason I chose to pursue my MSA at Boston College.”
