Get Your Continuing Education Credits Here!
Talking about CPE credits, are you aware that the typical two-credit MBT class is accredited for 30 CPE credits and an equivalent for CLE credits? Since alumni can audit MBT courses for half price, it is a bargain way to fulfill your continuing education requirements. And you don't even have to take any exams! If you missed taking courses such as International Tax or Compensation and Benefits while in the program, consider taking these courses in the fall. Register by contacting Rhonda Bjurlin and letting her know you are an MBT alum.
Summer/Fall Registration Open
It is not too late to register for a summer course (Transfer Pricing, Tax Negotiations, Small Business Corporations and Consolidated Returns). Classes begin the week of June 22. View a comprehensive MBT Curriculum Schedule of all MBT courses and when they are offered.
