Accounting majors, Rodneisha Clark and Roy Cofield, were selected from a national pool of candidates to attend the Leadership Excellence in the Accounting Profession (LEAP) Program taking place February 8-10, 2013. This program is being hosted by the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia.
During this conference, Rodneisha, Roy, and other accounting scholars will enhance their career development skills, improve their leadership skills, and learn about graduate school opportunities. Beyond the conference, they will continue to receive one-on-one mentoring from accounting professionals employed by the "Big Four" international accounting firms (i.e., Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, and PricewaterhouseCoopers). This network may lead to internship offers, graduate school fellowships, and full-time employment in audit or tax after earning their graduate degrees.
