What our Students are Saying…

I had been planning to get my master of professional accountancy for about five years. After reviewing my options, I found USD had the best price, plus AACSB-International Accreditation. I knew that if I wanted to advance my career as an accountant, I would need this degree. I was surprised how flexible the program actually was.”

I passed all four sections of the CPA exam on my first try, success I credit, in part, to the rigorous classes at the Beacom School.
