“The CBSM Accounting Program gave me the skills and exposure I needed to obtain an internship in the assurance department of the BDO USA, LLP Anchorage, AK office. This resulted in an offer for full-time employment after graduation from them even though I was still working on obtaining my bachelor’s degree.”
