Career Planning

The accounting department hosts two events each year dedicated to increasing student's understanding of career options available to them.

Building a Corporate Career with an Accounting / A&IS Background

Each Fall Quarter, the Accounting Department hosts a panel discussion titled “Building a Corporate Career with an Accounting/A&IS Background.” First year and sophomore business students attend the event to learn about the variety of career opportunities available to Accounting and A&IS majors beyond public accounting. The panel consists of SCU accounting alumni with approximately 5-15 years of business experience who currently work in serve in different roles at their companies. Some career paths have developed in accounting-related areas, while others have evolved into different corporate functions. The discussion provides students a realistic perspective of careers and experiences available to Accounting and A&IS majors.
