The following resources are for current School of Accountancy & MIS students.
Recruiters, particularly from major firms, are looking for accounting students who can maintain good grades in a rigorous accounting curriculum, reliably hold down a part-time job or internship, and participate as an officer or active member of a student organization. A student who can juggle multiple responsibilities, perform productively, contribute meaningfully to something outside the self, and achieve a satisfying life-work balance is a highly valued—and thus highly pursued—student. Active participation in a student group can help you become this student: the qualities recruiters are after are precisely the qualities student groups provide.
Events held by the accounting student organizations are posted to this single calendar by the leaders of each accounting student organization listed below.
Students are encouraged to also use the DePaul Career Center’s Handshake to access the accounting-related events sponsored by firms through the Career Center.

These assistantships include a tuition waiver for up to three classes per quarter (maximum of nine per year) and a stipend of $1500 per quarter. There are two types of graduate assistants:
ACC 393 Internship in Accountancy allows students to earn academic credit for
their current position in financial accounting, audit, or tax. Internships are
usually held within a corporation or a public accounting firm. Students obtain
valuable professional experience and begin the process of networking with area
businesses and professionals. Job responsibilities are expected to involve the
application of accounting knowledge and skills.
Internships can be found through DePaul Handshake. The Career Center also provides students
with practical professional career counseling.
