On October 13 and 14, Kappa Sigma Iota (KSI accounting club) visited Milwaukee to experience some business in action. The students were hosted by Becker Professional Education. Their first stop was Schenck CPA firm, then they visited with PwC Advisory (the second largest CPA firm in the world) with a final stop at Bemis Manufacturing. Students on this trip were able to meet with everyone from managing partners to newly hired accountants. Some student comments on their experience:
“Accountants sure do love their jobs!”
“Excel is the tool of business, and I need to learn to use it better.’
“I got a better understanding of what they are looking for when they ask situational questions during an interview.”
KSI is already beginning to prepare for their Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) which will take place in February. Through this initiative students in the accounting club assist community members and area students with completing tax returns.
