In 1974, acclaimed University of Florida professor Dr. Irvin N. Gleim and his wife created the first ever self-study course for the CPA Exam. A teacher and then-aspiring CPA, Dr. Gleim made it his mission to create an affordable, reliable “take-home study guide” for the CPA Exam. He believed that the CPA designation, and success, should be attainable for all students. Today, the Gleim mission is the same as it was then—to help as many accountants earn their certification as possible.
Gleim has been an industry-leading innovator from the start, creating the first CPA, CMA, and CIA self-study courses as well as developing adaptive learning technology to help candidates study. As such, educators and accountants have trusted Gleim to help them pass millions of exams. Our courses are created and designed by professional educators and practicing accountants, and every course prepares candidates using Dr. Gleim’s proven study method.
