“Enrolling in the CAAP program at Santa Clara University was a decision I’ve never regretted. The professors, administrators, and alumni were all incredibly helpful and provided me with the tools and resources to understand the course material within the time constraints of the program as well as throughout the employment process after the program ended. I was able to land a full-time role at a firm I truly connected with and aligned with my values. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking for a career change into accounting! ”

"I attended the virtual summer recruiting event where I met with many firms. I then interviewed with 3 firms (one Big 4) and received an offer from Frank, Rimerman + Co LLP. I knew immediately during the interview process that, if offered a job, I would go with them because they had everything I was looking for in my first accounting job. I am excited to begin as a Rotational Associate next Fall."

"Yes, it was challenging, but it's also extremely worth it to save the 2 years it would take to complete the courses separately. The entire faculty does an excellent job of supporting their students throughout the journey. The opportunity to interview with various accounting firms is also a very big luxury which many can only wish they would have."
