Don Schwartz received his accounting degree from Columbia University along with a law degree from New York University. Initially a CPA in the State of New York, Don has been a San Diegan since 1979 and holds a California CPA license. He has enjoyed three different accounting careers: first as a CPA practitioner on the staff of the Touche side of what is now Deloite and Touche. He then became one of the early pioneers in computer accounting services for CPAs, before the days in-house PC's. Several of Don's articles on the subject were published in the Journal of Accountancy and in The CPA Journal. Don's third accounting career -- teaching accounting -- started in 1981 as adjunct faculty for National University. In 1989 he joined the full-time faculty of National as head of its Accounting Program. In March 2004, he was appointed Department Chair of the Finance, Accounting and Economics Department in the School of Business and Management.
