Teaching & Instruction



What do you love about Becker?

"The opportunity to help young and seasoned professionals achieve their goals.   It is particularly gratifying to get notification of a new CPA or CMA who announces their success and acknowledges that you have helped them achieve this life-changing accomplishment."

What would you tell an accounting student today?

"The accounting profession and accounting careers offer the stability, flexibility, and financial rewards that are worth pursuing.   And even if the degree or credential takes you in another direction, the knowledge you earn benefits you, your family, and our society.  Life is always better when you understand how the money works.  And if you get the double meaning, you are on your way to understanding the significance of what you learning how to do."
