Business to Serve the Least of These

What can make a bigger difference in the lives of poor people: charity or business?  Be surprised by the possibilities.  The Center for International Development partners with students, mentors, and organizations to support those in impoverished countries who are trying to find meaningful, productive, and sustainable livelihoods. 

Accounting Program Excellence

We celebrate that our Accounting Alumni have placed in the top three of all California universities for highest average score on the CPA exam in 2010, 2011, and 2012, according to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA).  PLNU and UCLA are the only universities in California history to receive this honor for three consecutive years.
