Accounting Internship

To launch a new career in accounting at a top firm, your education will need to be more than just an outstanding classroom environment. It's going to take learning that only comes from hands-on, meaningful experience. Our MS in Accounting/MBA is distinguished in providing an advanced, engaging curriculum while offering you the opportunity to build confidence and a lifetime of valuable connections that will help you stand out professionally. That is where our internship program makes the difference.

Built into our MS In Accounting/MBA dual degree program is a transformative, paid three-month internship at a leading firm during the accounting busy season. This isn't your run-of-the-mill internship. It’s an opportunity to accelerate your career with unparalleled experience, skills, and insights that are relevant and applicable to real-world public accounting and business challenges.

YOUR ACCOUNTING INTERNSHIP: MAKING IT REAL

Six months into your studies, you will embark on a three-month internship at one of our corporate partners. Your internship will not only offer you valuable experience in the field, but also one-on-one guidance of a seasoned mentor. You will be right on the front line of a reputable accounting firm as they enter the height of busy season. Your internship will be a chance for you to put into practice the collective insights and skills you have developed in the classroom. The internship gives you the opportunity to do “real world work with real responsibilities” at an associate level and as part of a talented team.

Our staff will work diligently with you to find your best fit for your internship.
