"Beta Alpha Psi has been one of the best extracurricular activities of my college career. BAP gives us the opportunity to know what a career in finance, accounting, or ITM might feel like before ever stepping into the office. I truly believe that this invaluable experience has given me an advantage as I start my career in accounting. Additionally, the firm presentations have supplemented my academic knowledge with important skills to help me succeed such as how to handle feedback or the significance of having emotional intelligence. Lastly, BAP would not be BAP without the personal connections that are undoubtedly created at every chapter. While the relationships I’ve fostered were created through biweekly meetings for an hour and a half, I’m sure they will last a lifetime."
Beta Alpha Psi students are the future leaders of the profession, and their involvement with the organization demonstrates their dedication to excellence. The Illinois CPA Society has many student ambassadors who are also involved with BAP, and we value the opportunity to collaborate to share important resources and support more students throughout their journey to becoming a CPA.
