NABA and UT-Austin Join in Minority Recruitment Program

Kudos go to National Association of Black Accountants (NABA), The University of Texas at Austin’s Business School and Ernst & Young who have joined together for the seventh consecutive year to conduct the Accounting Career Awareness Program in mid-July.

The program was developed by NABA, where one of the missions is to involve more minority students in accounting.

The Red McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas is the site at which 22 high school students from across Texas will gather to participate in a week-long array of accounting courses. University professors and local professionals from EY will teach the courses that cover math, leadership, financial statements and team building.

In order to participate, students must hold a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and the average GPA is 3.7, reports CeCe Ridder, director of recruiting for the business school and coordinator of the career program.
