Words From Those
Who Know
"Running the Beta Alpha Psi Executive Board was like running a small business. We raised funds, managed finances, and prepared and submitted financial statements to the national board. I arranged speakers from the Big Four accounting firms to visit campus for networking opportunities with students, along with more than two dozen other industry-related events a year - all while juggling a job, internships, and classes. It was intense work, but deeply rewarding. The whole experience taught me how to manage a team of professionals and peers, and prepared me for a job after graduation."
