Joining a student organization is a great way to network and further your professional development. There are organizations on campus specifically for accounting students, including Beta Alpha Psi and National Association of Black Accountants.

Beta Alpha Psi (BAP)

The Eta Epsilon chapter of Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) has continued to grow since its installation at CMU in 1985. The fraternity is composed of accounting students who excel in their class work.

The Eta Epsilon chapter's goal is to prepare students for the transition from academia to the business environment, to promote knowledge in the field of accounting, to enhance student-faculty relations, and to use their accounting talents to benefit the community.

To help accomplish these goals, the chapter sponsors programs for their members. Representatives from public accounting, industry, and government cover topics such as internships, internal audits, international accounting techniques, and opportunities in the banking industry.
