​Accountancy Institute

Take your accounting career to the next level.

Whether you're a student, alumni or working professional, The Accountancy Institute is here to boost your leadership skills—and to help prepare you for a rewarding career in accounting. Our institute is headed up by the same award-winning faculty who design our curriculum with their latest research findings—so you'll always be on top of the latest thought leadership. 

We offer you a variety of professional growth opportunities, including a variety of speakers and linkages to the professional community. Using our strong connections with the local accounting industry, we team up with Career Services, the Accounting Society and Beta Alpha Psi to offer you additional networking and career development events—for example, the Career Services Accounting Recruiting Preparation event, where interested students and alumni learn how to fulfill the 150-hour requirement for obtaining CPA certification. With events like Meet The Firm, accountancy and taxation students can network with local firms on campus—and even have the chance to interview for internships and full-time employment.
