  • Access professional development, including CPE, to strengthen your skills and support meaningful career growth.
  • Reconnect and create meaningful new relationships with fellow MAC alumni, respected faculty and a network of diverse, skilled accounting professionals.

Great session and kick off to the program! The topic was interesting, something we wouldn’t normally hear about in CPE.
