International Student Success Stories

Narissa Williams Canisius
Nerissa Williams, MBA in Professional Accounting

 “I chose Canisius and specifically the Professional Accounting program because it was one of the few programs that would allow and prepare me for the CPA exam. As soon as I started the program I was meeting people working in different fields that made me realize the true value of the Canisius network. Thanks to these opportunities, I’ve already secured my internship with Deloitte for next summer.”

Ismail Diyani, MS in Finance

“I decided to come to Canisius to pursue a Master of Science in Finance because the Golden Griffin Fund (GGF) will give me an opportunity to handle real money and gain hands-on experience in investment management. I also appreciate that my professors also work with me personally whenever I need support and are helping me reach my goal of working in M&A.“

“So far, I have had an extremely rewarding and uplifting experience at Canisius. I am especially appreciative of the support I received from the ALANA (African American, Latinx American, Asian American, or Native American) Center and from my program director, faculty and staff in the PA program.”

“I first heard about Canisius from one of my Japanese friends that had previously attended the institution. I really enjoy my major, Digital Media Arts, because I get to experience and learn new things every day and my classmates have been extremely supportive all along the way.”
