“We, the members of Beta Alpha Psi at the University of Illinois at Chicago, think the benefits of BAP can be captured in a few words: increasing professionalism, endless opportunities, great networking, and building leadership skills. These quotes came from various members and E-Board members, and really encompass what our chapter focuses on. Having such diverse companies available in Chicago to come and present on various topics from types of accounting roles to how to present yourself in an interview allow our members to not only obtain internships and jobs, but also vastly improve their professionalism and professional networks. Many of the opportunities our members have been granted have come directly from BAP events and skills we learned at said events.”
At Xero, we want millions of small businesses to thrive through better tools, information and connections with their accounting and bookkeeping partners. We know technology is only half the equation - it's the human and technology elements combined that make the role of an accounting professional so powerful. Members of Beta Alpha Psi are the catalyst to make our mission a reality and represent the future success of small businesses as the advisors that will lead them forward.
