I believe the Briner School of Business Accounting Program equipped me with knowledge and abilities not found in a textbook. Their unique approach to educating Christ-like businessmen and women granted me the fortitude to conquer the CPA exam and pursue a care in public accounting with PwC. Attending Greenville University was the best decision of my life!
