RCB resources drive students to succeed

The glowing LED financial ticker in Business Hall initially caught Bill Sikora’s attention. Bill Sikora

But after he enrolled in the Rohrer College of Business (RCB), he found that the entire building was crammed with resources for inspiration — from the Success Boards near the Rohrer Center for Professional Development (RCPD), where students scrawl news of full-time positions and internships, to the faculty and staff.

“There are so many resources on campus, like the RCPD and the Executive in Residence, Jerry Maginnis,” said Sikora, of Marlton, a senior accounting and finance major who transferred from Rowan College of Burlington County. “I knew that whatever I wanted to do, there is someone in Business Hall who can push me in the right direction and give me the right advice.”

Intent on landing a position with a Big Four firm, Sikora served as president of RCB’s Accounting Society, one of the College’s 13 business organizations. He is now president of Beta Alpha Psi Xi Theta chapter, an international honor society for financial information students.

“I gained a lot of great experience through that, whether it’s networking or making new friends on campus,” he said.

Sikora interned with the Philadelphia Union and KPMG, which hired him full time after graduation.

“Rowan is a very special place, especially Business Hall,” Sikora said. “I’m inspired every day.”
