I enrolled in the Graduate Certificate program in accounting as a career change. The admissions staff was helpful and punctual. The MBA course (503) I took as a required prerequisite was interesting and reasonably well taught. In taking the entire sequence of 3 Financial Reporting courses, I was distressed by the apathy of the instructors- assignments were often returned misgraded (which I had to point out) and instructors were sometimes also teaching for the notorious for-profit schools, which I was specifically trying to avoid. When, as someone with no previous accounting experience (in contrast to virtually the entire class in each course, a fact I had to discover on my own), I asked for clarification on the highly abstruse accounting problems, I was simply told, "It's your assignment to turn in and be graded." I also could not get a clear answer from the school whether completing the program would enable me to sit for the CPA exam, a key credential for accountants. By the third course like this, despite getting good grades with great effort, I felt like an exploited cash cow and withdrew.
