42nd Annual Accounting Awards Banquet

The 42nd Annual Accounting Awards Banquet took place on May 30th.  Forty-two years speaks to a strong tradition for our Department of Accounting.  No wonder our accounting graduate program is ranked fourteenth in the nation by US News and World Report!

The evening featured the awarding of 15 scholarships, three academic awards, and one service award.  Beta Alpha Psi, the accounting academic honorary, also presented eleven leadership awards to members.  Our BAP chapter is top notch, having won the BAP Gold Chapter Award for three consecutive years.  Only a handful of the over 300 BAP chapters nationally receive this award each year, so to win in three consecutive years is exceptional.

Professor Sarah Bee and Dominique Vincenti, chair of our Internal Audit Advisory Board, received the prestigious Chair's Award for their contributions to the development of our Internal Audit program.  The Chair's Award is given each year to someone who provides outstanding service to the Department of Accounting.

Congratulations are in order to the Department of Accounting on the occasion of its 42nd Annual Accounting Awards Banquet!
