Hear from our university partners
Rachel Domnick, Oklahoma State University
A CPA review course that is included in a master’s program is an indicator of student's ability to succeed on the CPA exam. The goal of the master’s program at Oklahoma State University is to make sure our students are ready to be successful upon their entrance into their professional accounting careers.
Susan Henderson, California State University, Fresno
When we started the CPA review program three years ago, we used four different review courses. Moving to Becker and using Navigator was a game changer. It not only made my job easier and more efficient; I believe I am a better mentor to the students because of it.
Thomas Godwin Assistant Professor, Purdue University CPA
We wanted to set our students up for success. In my experience, one of the most difficult things about taking the CPA exam was making sure that you held yourself accountable, which is easier to do when you have an instructor that you’re familiar with and is there to guide you.
*Pass rate based on those students that met Exam Day Ready threshold and self-reported scores to us in 2020 and is calculated by dividing the total sections passed by total sections attempted across all qualifying students. “Exam Day Ready” threshold means students watched 80% of our lecture videos, answered 80% of our MCQs and TBSs correctly and scored a minimum of 50% on our simulated exams. Scores may be reported at any time. We recognize there is an inherent bias to these results as students who do not pass may not share this information with us.
