Reinstate Liliana HIckman-Riggs and Becker Review Course at UTDallas School of Management sign now

We, the undersigned, are shocked and dismayed at the administrations decision to discontinue the Becker Review Classes taught by Liliana Hickman-Riggs at The University of Texas at Dallas School of Management. This decision is short-sighted and is not in the best interests of advancing the universitys goal of being a Tier One institution or of increasing the pass rates for UTD students on the CPA exam.

As Liliana herself is known to say, she can lead students to the tools and techniques that help in passing the exam, but it is the students onus to put in the time and energy needed to pass the CPA exam. If the pass rate on the exam is not in line with the Universitys targets, it is an incorrect correlation to link this to either Lilianas efforts or the quality of the Becker review course.

We stand with the hundreds of students who have been influenced by Liliana and have passed one or more sections of the exam in respectfully demanding that the UTD School of Management reverse this decision. We will take any measure reasonable and necessary, including but not limited to withholding of any alumni contributions, until this decision is reconsidered.
As alumni of this fine institution, we have only the best interests of the University at heart and sign this petition in the interest of the University as well as future CPA candidates who will come after us.

    It is disappointing to hear of this decision and to learn that Professor Liliana will be leaving UTD. Current and future accounting students will suffer a great loss without Liliana's leadership and devotion in the classroom. It would be in UTD's best int

    Dear Lilian, I heard from some of my friends who are currently studying in UTD. What I want to say to you is : Never let anything or anyone defeat you! You are the greatest teacher I have never ever met in my life. If it were not you, I will never never l

    Probably the most dedicated professor I have ever had the luxury of having.

    Liliana was one of the best instructors i had when i was studying at UTD. This is a tremendous loss. I believe tier one school equals to high hiring rate after graduation. Getting a CPA license will definitely help. Please reconsider.

    I heard about this from my friend who is a CPA and graduated from UTD. I know that without Liliana she cannot achieve none of them. We will support you!

    Liliana is in true sense the best teacher in UTD I have come across in 3 years of my MBA study. She not only is one of the most knowledgeable professionals in accounting but also one of the finest human beings. I am probably not going to take CPA but, I k

    I attended UTD last year to acquire the 18 graduate hours I needed to lecture in accounting at the university level. Of the six courses I completed, I learned far more from Liliana than any other single professor. She literally commands her students to le

    Liliana is a fantastic professor- one of the best! No other professor is as passionate about teaching accounting as she is and she truly cares about her students. It's a shame that UTD is letting her go. No wonder UTD has a hard time going up in rankings.

    I passed all CPA parts with the help of Professor Liliana Hickman-Riggs and Becker review course. She is a great asset to the UTD students as well as the SOM. She is so dedicated to all the courses she teaches. I think it definitely will be a wrong decisi
