"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."
MACPA’s purpose is leading our profession, Maryland first, in transforming the world and making a positive impact. We seek to Connect, Protect and help the CPA-led profession Achieve success. With this in mind, we partner with BAP, it’s leadership, students, educators and fellow professional partners, because we believe in the power of collaboration and the importance of community. BAP students are our future leaders and together our future is brighter and stronger.
