Large publicly traded companies and new entrepreneurial ventures are receptive to students who want to enhance their academic studies with hands-on experience. Industries in the area include utilities, health care, light and heavy manufacturing, banking, and multinational corporations.
Accounting students have access to the “Big Four” multinational, as well as numerous regional and local, public accounting firms. Additionally, students interested in working in corporate accounting have opportunities to work with the accounting organizations of nearby corporations.
The Accounting Internship Program is intended to give students a learning opportunity to apply their accounting, auditing, tax, and business knowledge in a real world setting.
