About the Accounting Club
The purpose of the Accounting Club is to give its members valuable experiences to help them be successful in the world of accounting.
We attend the annual Student Leadership Conference through the Institute of Management Accountants, where we build our networks, gain valuable knowledge and experience, and meet potential employers. Member costs are defrayed by hosting professional conferences at LSSU.
Professional conferences are targeted to those seeking continuing professional education credits in order to expand their knowledge and keep up in the dynamic accounting environment.
Members also have access to discounted and free, study materials for the CMA and CPA exams.
"Lake State is a local University that gave me the option to earn my education while located close to my family. My short-term goal is to gain as much experience as possible in the community and to possibly continue my education toward a Masters Degree. I’d like to continue my work within the city and take advantage of opportunities to be more involved in local politics. In the long term, after I’ve made myself as competitive as possible in the marketing field, I’d like to get a job at a medium to large size company and work more with individual products or brands as opposed to marketing a company itself."
