“SOAEP has been more beneficial than any other schooling I’ve done. Learning accounting concepts and rules while working in accounting is incredibly helpful. I have an “aha” moment on a weekly basis…when I hear something in class and am able to apply it at work instantaneously. This rewarding feeling is motivating me to never stop my journey of learning. In the past, I viewed schooling as a temporary thing. SOAEP has taught me and showed me to be a life-long student. This program has truly been wonderful.”

“I am proud to announce that I have successfully completed my Masters of Accounting in Forensic Analytics from Florida Atlantic University. Thank you to all my friends and family who have supported me in my journey over the last 3 years. I would like to give a special thanks to the FAU School of Accounting Executive Program staff for all of their assistance especially professors Dr. Jay Leiner, DBA, Kenneth Orbach, and special thanks to Berlinda Juste for keeping me on track each and every semester. I owe the biggest thank you to Denise Gravatt for taking a personal interest in helping me establish and manage my career while taking classes. This would not have been possible without all of your help!!!”

“The executive tax program at FAU was a truly wonderful experience for me. The flexibility of the class location and schedule, the knowledge and experience that the professors were able to offer, and the relationships that I developed have all greatly served me during my career in public accounting. Because I was working full time in the tax area while enrolled in the program, I was able to apply what I learned from each class in real time, which helped me to progress rapidly in my career. I recommend the program to everyone who is devoted to gaining current and practical tax expertise and am very grateful to FAU for all that it shared with me.”

“As with any transition from school to the real world, there is a lot more to learn, but I think that the [Business Valuation] program gave me a really good head start on understanding the valuation processes and valuation methods. Professor Michael Crain did an amazing job giving us assignments that mimic real life valuation engagements; he also taught us how to write the reports properly. I really enjoyed all of the courses, and I think they prepared me well for a career in business valuation.”

“My degree has certified and confirmed me as a professional in the field of forensic accounting. The classes provided me with a strong foundation in various aspects (audit, law, accounting, IT, etc.) that have assisted me in my day to day activities as a forensic accountant. Without the knowledge obtained and the degree I have earned, I do not believe I would be as far along in my career as I am.”

“The forensic accounting program at FAU was rigorous and demanding but it was definitely worth it. The professors have real world experience and the ability to explain text book concepts as they would apply in the field. The program has opened new doors for me in the accounting field. With the help of the student services staff, I was able to get a job as a forensic accountant at C. Lewis & Company, an international forensic accounting firm. I am constantly using what I learned at FAU in my day to day responsibilities.”
