Ryan Shambaugh

"Through my work in the emerging professionals seminar, I have been able to accomplish things I never thought were possible. I secured internship offers from all of the big four accounting firms and have accepted an offer to work for Ernst & Young in the summer of 2021. I have been able to apply lessons from the seminar almost everyday since the completion, and I am significantly more prepared to face the professional world and for that, I will be forever grateful."

– Ryan Shambaugh, SCC Business School Graduate
