“I have recruited at Gonzaga for so many years because the students from Gonzaga are, without question, of such higher quality than those of any other program in the state of Washington. Gonzaga accounting graduates are notable for their distinct ability to work well in a team consisting of persons with varying degrees of professional experiences. Frankly, we could be completely missing the boat if we did not prioritize Gonzaga in the way we do for recruiting purposes.” - Chris Richard, Director of Accounting Policy @ Amazon
