The Accounting Club provides interested students with information regarding career development and professional certification. The club also acts as an avenue through which the students can network, participate in various social events, and meet other students with similar career objectives.
During club activity hour, the accounting students get together and participate in social activities and accounting-related topics of discussion. The goal of the Iona College Accounting Club is to provide each student with the proper tools such that they will be a sought-after entity in the professional environment. The Club tries to enhance student interest in the Accounting field, as well as assist students in the transition from academia to the workplace.
This past year the Accounting Club participated in the following activities:
We had agents from the Internal Revenue Service come to speak with our students about the career opportunities Accountants have in the government.
Iona’s Career Services Department came to speak about the Accounting Winter Internship Program available to senior accounting majors.
Representatives from CPA Exam preparation courses gave students a look into the programs available to help with studying for all sections of the CPA Examination.
Junior-year accounting majors participated in on-campus recruiting with various Big Four accounting firms and Fortune 500 corporations.
