Introducing High School Students to Accounting

Accounting enrollments are declining despite steady demand for accounting graduates. With dual-enrollment programs and Advanced Placement coursework in high schools, many college students arrive on our campuses with college credits in hand and pre-selected majors in mind. Thus, we need to show them all of the pathways they have in accounting and how they can build their own roadmaps as a result of studying accounting in college and beyond. This is especially true for high school students from groups historically underrepresented in the accounting profession. In this weARE webinar, panelists will share ideas and programs to achieve this goal.

Learning Objective(s): To learn about programs to interest high school students in the field of accounting.
