"By taking the course, I certainly gained many different experiences from high school. First, since the purpose of postsecondary education is to prepare students for professional occupations, the professor brought up updated information about accounting-related careers. Secondly, through participating in the course, my knowledge of accounting is enriched due to the valuable and real-world related questions that are asked by the students."
