Meet the Firm and Meet the Firm Lite

Meet the Firm is a special opportunity for accounting and finance students to enhance their professional skills and meet employers; this event is held each fall.

Meet the Firm Lite is an opportunity for sophomore and junior accounting students to learn about summer leadership opportunities; this event is held each spring.

The Basics

Meet the Firm is an annual, fall semester event connecting accounting and finance students with firms and companies that offer internships and full-time roles. This year, we are separating the traditional fall Meet the Firm event into two events to accommodate our current environment. The first event on September 2 will be exclusively for accounting majors and include public accounting firms and corporations that host summer leadership programs. The second event on September 22 will be for both finance and accounting majors and include all other employers who are seeking to meet students in the finance/accounting industry. To see if you are eligible to attend one of these events, please select the Who Should Attend menu below and view the Meet the Firm requirements.

Meet the Firm Lite is an annual, spring semester event for sophomore and junior accounting students to learn more about summer leadership opportunities, which are one-to-three day programs offered by accounting firms to engage with students. All sophomore and junior accounting students are expected to attend this event.
