Brett Rousseau, CPA
I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with both my Master in Professional Accounting and Bachelor in Business Administration degress. I am a licensed certified public accountant (CPA) in the state of Missouri.
I joined Maryville University in order to pursue my true passion of educating, mentoring and learning. Relying heavily on my industry experience to bring accounting alive in the classroom, I teach financial accounting, intermediate accounting and financial reporting courses using real-world examples. I am constantly reinventing class material based on new accounting pronouncements and current events impacting the business and accounting community. I get students excited about accounting by introducing them to various career paths that an accounting degree provides. Each semester, I bring in at least one accounting professional from a St. Louis-based company to provide a “day in the life” presentation about the particular professional’s current and prior job responsibilities. These opportunities also help connect students to potential employers.
