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)
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.
