Review Course Environment
Overview of review courses that are marketing on campus. What do the competitors do and how does
the school view everyone?
The main competitor is Becker. I actually dubbed Assumption as Beckerville. The accounting
department is lined with Becker posters, even on faculty’s doors. The problem has been that the
faculty is not receptive to us. There are not any accounting organizations on campus, so it has been
difficult to identify a campus rep. I will work with Phil to find someone as a rep, looks like the faculty
will be a challenege.
