William Brewer

Hi, I’m Will, a graduate of this program. I got this degree because I wanted to use accounting skills to help people. Since graduating, I now work as an auditor/investigator for the NYS Attorney General’s Office.

Most people applying to jobs in this field only have skills in accounting OR criminal justice – Roberts taught me skills in both, meaning I can bring more to the table than other candidates. The most helpful skill I learned was analytical thinking – how to dig deeper and process my way to solutions. I’m better at problem solving and research thanks to Roberts.

I highly recommend this program.
