"Offering in-person and online access to high-quality professional development speaks to our university’s mission as the state’s flagship land grant institution.

Burmeister College Professor of Investments, professor of finance and executive director of the Center for Executive and Professional Development.

The institute is an accredited continuing education provider with the IRS (Provider #NQ6J1) and the Nebraska Supreme Court Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Commission. The seminars are hosted in partnership with the Internal Revenue Service and the Nebraska Department of Revenue.
