“UMA was my only avenue to obtaining my bachelor’s degree and therefore getting my CPA license. I worked full-time, raised a family and went to school at nights, on weekends and online. Without UMA’s flexible schedule, I would not be where I am today…Employers are excited when they can hire adults who have both experience and education.”

– Gwen, ’09

Certified Public Accountant, Certified Fraud Examiner, and CFO of a large public school system in southern Maine.
