Each course will utilize a combination of live lecture, recorded lectures, task-based simulations, and simulated exams, and include materials from a major CPA exam review program. The courses are designed to use analytics to measure student success and help focus classroom time on more complex or difficult to understand topics. Each course will incorporate graduate level exploration and analysis of case studies and practice-based examples to further students’ understanding of the concepts covered.
