Majors: yes, I did enjoy accounting classes. ( I was in masters in Acc program) Some classes were very difficult, but it was worth it. I would like to believe that they made me a better entry level -profesional.

Majors: It was great! I interned at WTAS (Now Anderson Tax). They paid good money, and people were very friendly, explained a lot of topics, had a lot of very useful training. I loved it there.

Diversity: very diverse, you can find someone from anywhere in the world here.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: alumni network is great. That is how i got my job. Career fairs are very helpful, and career advisors too. Resume advisors are also very helpful.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I think the experienced professors' contribution to the academia makes the school unique. Most of the professors are still working, and have amazing experience in the current business world.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: You can get your degree faster here, and also, most of the classes are in the evening or online. So you have a lot of options. There are career events, bit you have to be proactive yourself. Nobody will find a job for you. No matter how proactive the career advisors are, you are the person who needs that damn job, or inernship, so you have to try hard. Moreover, SF is a very competitive place, you need to try even harder.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: There are some great professors like Tedd Mitchell. He has over 30 years of experience in Tax and is still working. You learn a lot from this kind of people. Majority of profesors have very good experience. But there are some very young ones too with some experience, but they are still good. You get a specific eduation here, not a general education.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There are security officers, but i have never heard of anyone getting into trouble near or in the campus. Some areas in SF are not very safe, so you have to be careful when walking on the streets or riding a bus at nights. Just know the city.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: As I said before, this school is for working professionals, and people who are seeking to get their education in a fast track format. If you would like to enjoy parks, meal, you are welcome to explore the city that offers so much. You will be surrounded with people who are experienced (ex., peers), and who can advise, put you in the right direction, or at least give you a picture how it is to be in certain fields of work in real life. Staff is friendly, professors are experienced. Overall, I think I had a very good and satisfying experience there. Right after graduation I was offered an internship, and a full-time job a few months into my internship.

The things that I would change is following:

1. More scholarship opportunities

2. Career advisory events should be for everyone, not only for people who have certain GPA. I was invited to those events, but i felt sad that some of my peers were not. I am sure they had some things planned for them too, but I believe there should not be any discrimination.

3. Accounting students are not invited to Tax Career events, and vice versa. The management should understand that some accounting students are actually interested in working as tax professionals. But that was not the case there. Some students sneaked into those career events where they wanted to try their luck, I heard.

Majors: application process was smooth, the program can be personally modified to anyone, you will just need to take more classes. For example, if you have no background in accounting, economics, math, etc, and you want to be in a masters in Finance program, you will be offered some basic finance, math, accounting, etc classes before you can join your peers in the actual program
