Jim Colville designed and implemented the course "Taxation of the Business Entity" at UCSD Extension. This course has evolved into one of department's most successful and popular classes. The course was designed for business professionals, continuing education for CPAs and those students who desire to learn business taxation or sit for the CPA exam. The course qualifies for accounting hours needed to sit for the CPA exam with the State Board of Accountancy. The course content has been adapted for seminar and CPE eduation for CPA firms. Since 2008 Jim's teaching of this class is on hold.

Courses are still offered through the university today on an on-demand basis. UCSD Instructor of the Year.
