AAA Pipeline Webinar Series

Challenges and Opportunities for Increasing Diversity in the Accounting Pipeline

Sep 12, 2023 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm Eastern

View Recording Below:

Why do (or don’t) undergraduate business students choose accounting as a major? And why do (or don’t) accounting graduates pursue CPA licensure? What can business schools do to persuade students to pursue an accounting degree? This webinar will highlight key findings from the Center for Audit Quality’s most recent commissioned research that seeks to dive deeper in understanding students’ perceptions of and experience with accounting to develop a clear understanding of what can be done to further diversify the accounting talent pool. The webinar will also include faculty perspectives on this issue.
