MS, Accountancy Class of 2011

Two factors helped draw Cameron Nofi from Texas to Rochester to attend business school: Simon's small class size and the School’s quantitative approach to teaching.
"I have been most impressed with the faculty and their passion for teaching students both in and out of the classroom," Cameron says. "The small class sizes at Simon provide students with direct interaction with some of the best faculty in their respective fields."
The Austin, TX, native has been particularly impressed with Heidi Tribunella a clinical associate professor of accounting. "She does a lot for her students both in and out of the classroom, from helping with specific homework problems to preparing for the CPA exam," Cameron says.
Cameron is adept with numbers both in and outside of the classroom. He was a four-year member of the Dallas Baptist University golf team as an undergraduate and, as a senior, received a Division II Athletics Directors Association Academic Achievement Award, which is presented to athletes who have grade point averages of at least 3.5. Cameron also excelled on the golf course, becoming one of the first freshmen in Dallas Baptist University history to qualify for the Division II Regional Tournament.
Cameron, no surprise, is a member of the Simon Golf Club, as well as the Simon Accounting Association and Simon Ambassadors.
"My Simon experience has helped prepare me for the changing business environment by sharpening my problem solving and quantitative skills. These will be skills that I use on a daily basis as I begin a career in public accounting."
