Joining a student organization is a great way to network and further your professional development. There are two organizations on campus specifically for accounting students, as well as the SAP User Group.

Beta Alpha Psi (BAP)

The Eta Epsilon chapter of Beta Alpha Psi 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, along with SAS, sponsored programs for their members. Representatives from public accounting, industry, and government covered topics such as internships, internal audits, international accounting techniques, and opportunities in the banking industry.

Student Accounting Society (SAS)

The Student Accounting Society (SAS)  is a student organization within the College of Business Administration. Its purpose is to supplement overall understanding of the accounting profession. Although technical knowledge is important, SAS recognizes that an understanding of the work environment also is necessary. SAS helps to provide this information to students throughout the year through professional meetings and various activities with accounting firms.
