Q: Please tell is about your background and what led you to do the Online MIB program.

Wojciechowski: “I completed my undergrad in accounting at the Fisher School of Accounting and was looking for a business master’s program at the University of Florida that was available online since I was moving out of state and starting a full-time job.”  

Q: Along with the Online MIB, what else were you doing? Why was the Online MIB program a good fit for you?

Wojciechowski: “I have been working at a public accounting firm while completing my master’s. The MIB program offered an interesting curriculum that has been flexible to a full-time working schedule, allowing me to continue my education while working full time in San Diego, California.”

Q: What is your best experience in the Online MIB program?

Wojciechowski: “The best experience I had in the MIB program was the online GIE option. I learned a lot about China during that course.”

Q: What is one thing you wish you had known at the beginning of the program?

Wojciechowski: “I wish I had known earlier that you can do the combined degree option online while at UF for undergrad. I was lucky enough to work with an advisor to make that happen during my undergraduate program, but it is an option I have found many students didn’t know about.”

Wojciechowski: “The MIB program was very flexible and all the professors were very accommodating to students’ work-life balance. That being said be sure to schedule your time wisely because semesters fly by!”

Q: Tell us three fun facts about you.

Wojciechowski: “1. I graduated with my undergrad on 12/12/19, got married 12/22/19, moved to California 12/29/19 and started a full-time job on 1/2/20! 2. My husband and I just got a husky lab puppy who we named Stella. 3. I have hiked the West Highland Way (a stretch of 96 miles) in my home country, Scotland.”
