    “College of DuPage is a great place to learn and grow. As a post-baccalaureate, I was at a complete loss for what to do with my life. I am so grateful for people like Accounting Professor Maureen McBeth and all the teachers I’ve had so far at COD for helping me get on the right track. I have enjoyed all the time I’ve had to learn from these great people. For anyone considering these programs, I strongly suggest you come and see what the COD Business/Management/Marketing and Accounting programs are like. I’m positive you will not regret the decision.”
