Highlight: Doors open and opportunities show themselves in different ways in life. For you, Minnesota juniors and seniors interested in accounting and/or business, this is an opportunity to get the inside scoop on accounting! At MNCPA Scholars, you will be a part of a year long mentorship that will start in September. This accounting program will show you the ins and outs of the job of a CPA, or a certified public accountant. If you decide to apply to this accounting program, you will shadow a real CPA and meet and dine with firm partners.

It’s essentially a year long modified job shadowing opportunity with a whole lotta perks thrown in! Apply by June 15th to this accounting program and get a head start on your career today!
