Workshop graduates hone networking skills and prep for CPA Exam


Ninety-eight students graduated from the AICPA 2017 Accounting Scholars Leadership Workshop (ASLW), a program designed to strengthen ethnic-minority students' professional and networking skills, and help them prepare for the CPA Exam.

The students represented a diverse range of backgrounds, from colleges and universities across the United States and Puerto Rico. The annual program is for students who demonstrate a strong desire to complete the CPA Exam and an interest in pursuing a career in accounting. The AICPA Foundation covers the participants' travel, hotel accommodations, and meals.
