The UCLA Extension certificate program helped me to achieve my goals, including obtaining my CPA license, and the networking opportunities opened many professional doors for me. Professors are incredibly well-versed with the subject matter, and made it interesting and interactive all along. Today I am in private practice. I highly recommend UCLA Extension's program.
