Based on the need expressed by our Advisory Board of School of Accountancy, our alumni and students, the School of Accountancy of Shidler College is offering CPA Review sessions (some restrictions apply). The "Auditing and Attestation" portion is taught by Professor Robert Hatanaka who has many years of experience in teaching CPA review preparation courses and others.
