"UNR has a great accounting school reputation; and has a great atmosphere. I prefer the in-class setting compared to online. The University allowed me to pursue my certification and increased my accounting knowledge; as well, it allowed me to bond more with Reno, as UNR is an important part of Northern Nevada.

UNR was similar to California State University, San Bernardino's (also accredited) accounting program which is where I got my undergrad. I did not necessarily find anything unique, which is not a bad thing; I just found it to be a good, solid accounting program. Every instructor was exceptional, I found it very helpful to be taught by PhD's; but everyone had such good accounting knowledge.

Working for a smaller firm allows a great breadth of experience. In addition to tax season, I have compiled, reviewed and audited financial statements, as well as gained a healthy amount of consulting experience. I am very pleased with the Accounting program; I would recommend it to any accounting undergrad."
