Student Experience - PPA

Professional Program in Accounting

What’s It Like to Be in PPA?

Recruiting Process

The Professional Program in Accounting is the best resource to help students get noticed by top public accounting firms. As a PPA student, you will have opportunities to attend recruiting events such as classroom presentations, social mixers, office visits and more. Public accounting firms actively recruit PPA students and build deep connections in hopes to secure them for internships and full-time placements.

Access to Lounge

The PPA Lounge serves as a communal space for our members to focus on their studies while also building their community. Students have access to conference rooms, study areas, monitors for presentations, and more.

PPA Events

As a member of PPA, you will attend several socials and events. We do our best to build a strong community within PPA, and what better way to do so than all hang out together on and off campus!
