“Today’s accountants have the ability to provide critical information leading to superior business decisions such as cost containment, quality improvements, production efficiencies, and increased customer satisfaction,” said Dr. Saeed Roohani, Chair of the Accounting Department at Bryant University. “We’re reaching out to high school students to help them understand how exciting and challenging the field is today.”

Space is limited. Applications will be accepted from high school juniors from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and Washington, D.C.. Students must have a minimum 2.7 GPA, or equivalent, and have completed Algebra II by the end of their junior year.

Participants in the program are immersed in an exciting learning environment campus for one week and learning through interactions with accounting professional, case studies and role playing.
