What sets our program apart is that you will know the necessary courses from day one and be able to plan your schedule accordingly.

“The close personal interaction with professors who are CPA’s themselves creates a real opportunity to learn and prepare for a job in that field. I know several individuals who have secured jobs with Big Four and regional accounting firms, including two of us who are now partners in those firms.”---Sean Vincent ‘93, partner at KPMG LLP.
