"I went to McMaster for Software Engineering and Management. While working in Process Automation, I completed my MBA and subsequently I moved to Financial Reporting. I quickly realized that I needed a CPA designation to remain competitive. Adding CPA to my credentials was definitely beneficial – it has opened many doors and I can go anywhere." - Jacky Ng
