THE ACCOUNTING SOCIETY


To Contact Us:
Faculty Advisor:  Dr. Myrna Fischman at 718-488-1157 or myrna.fischman@liu.edu.  Weekly meetings are held during the school year on Thursdays at 11am in the second floor lounge of the Humanities Building on the Brooklyn Campus. 

What is it all about?
The Accounting Society is a professional club at LIU's School of Business, Public Administration and Information Sciences which seeks to make students more aware of the accounting major and field.

We expose students to the accounting environment at an early stage in their academic career. We hope to spark students' interest in the field, and encourage them to select an accounting major.

Throughout the year we have many professional events to which we invite speakers from the Big Four accounting firms, mid-sized firms, private industry, government and CPA review courses.

Our goal is to address a wide variety of general accounting issues and topics. We conduct our events in an atmosphere that is comfortable to the students, so that they feel comfortable attending, asking questions and meeting the speakers/recruiters at the end of each event. Some of our past topics include: career opportunities in government, public accounting and corporations, resume preparation, and the CPA exam.

We also sponsor events with LIU alumni who are now working in the world of accounting. These events give current LIU students a chance to find out first hand, from former LIU students, what the "real world" of accounting is all about, and what students should do to be most successful in the future.

Involvement in the Accounting Society is a great way to find out more about the accounting major and field. For students who are uncertain about their career paths but are considering accounting as a possibility, attending these events will help in making a decision. For others who are certain about accounting, these events provide knowledge of the most current issues in the field as well as the opportunity to become familiar with recruiters of many of the firms. This knowledge will be useful in searching for internships and full time positions.
