Eric Lee's Bio

I believe Golden Gate University is exceptional because of the vast amount of real world experience of the full time and adjunct professors. The professors bring in tangible stories and examples that make the technical material more relevant and understandable.

Eric Lee has taught at Golden Gate University since 1998 as an Adjunct Professor. In 2012, Eric joined the full time faculty in the School of Tax as a Lecturer and Academic Director of Quality and Training. Prior to his time at GGU, Eric worked in the tax departments at KPMG, BDO, and Deloitte over a twenty year period. While at KPMG, he earned his CPA license and received an Instructor Excellence Award for his work as a national training teacher. As a Senior Manager at Deloitte, Eric worked in the Consumer Business practice, serving large corporate clients doing business across states and overseas. Later, he served as Deloittes Learning Director for the Northern Pacific region, overseeing all tax training. Eric is also a writer and has published three books consisting of mystery short stories, and most recently in 2011, he published his first novel entitled, Trying to Win at Love. Eric holds a B.S. in Business Administration from University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business and an M.S. in Taxation from Golden Gate University.
