We're counting down the days left until Christmas by highlighting certain aspects of the Busch School that line up with the days in our countdown, akin to the 12 days of Christmas. With 4 days left, we celebrate our Accounting students being placed at the Big 4 Accounting firms!
Our Accounting degree is designed to prepare students for a career in the public accounting profession, private industry, government, and the nonprofit sector. What sets this accounting program apart is the emphasis placed on learning and gaining real world experience from the accounting faculty who guide students in their accounting career. All faculty are CPAs and have considerable work experience in the private or public sector. There is close mentoring of each Accounting student, and their professor mentor remains the same for their four years.
60% of Accounting students receive a full-time job offer eight months before graduation. By graduation, 100% of Accounting students have received full-time offers. Recently, our Accounting students did exceptionally well in their interviews with CPA firms for Summer 2021 internships. 21 Accounting students received offers, and 81% were offers from the Big Four Accounting firms.
