I remind my students they made a wise economic decision by choosing Chesapeake College with its solid return on their minimal investment. Chesapeake is an ideal starting point for students interested in transferring to a four-year institution or to begin a career in management, accounting or any other business field.

I’ve found each candidate to be well educated to assume the role as an entry-level accountant to include a practical working knowledge of the tools and software used in our profession. The education they receive from Chesapeake has enabled each one of them to grow within the profession at a rapid pace. All are an integral part of our firm.
