“The accounting program at GHC provided enormous value to my life both professionally and personally.  The coursework gave me not only the skill set necessary to transfer to a 4-year college but also supplied me with the firm foundation in accounting and business necessary to succeed in a competitive workforce.  Even more importantly, the instructors and staff at GHC genuinely care about the students and provide a supportive, learning environment.
